Perry put together a productive 2016 season. He started 12 games and recorded 11 sacks and 52 tackles. In 4 prior seasons, he had only 12.5 sacks in his career. Green Bay entered this offseason $37 million to spend. Perry, 27, got offers from several other teams but decided to remain with the Packers.
Green Bay still has a number of impending free agents. Those players include Eddie Lacy, Julius Peppers, James Starks, T.J. Lang, J.C. Tretter, Jared Cook, and Micah Hyde.
