Former Rams tight end Lance Kendricks is headed to sign with the Green Bay Packers. Kendricks enjoyed a long stay with the Rams, 6 years. He received a 4 year 18.5 million dollar deal in 2015 and ultimately lasted only two out of those seasons.
One day after signing Martellus Bennett, Packers now bringing former Rams TE Lance Kendricks back to Wisconsin, per @RobDemovsky and me.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 11, 2017
Kendricks will enjoy a homecoming as he was born and actually played his college football in Wisconsin. An under-achiever as a 2nd round pick, Kendricks should add good depth and another option that can be moved around for Aaron Rodgers to find. This is the second Rams tight end the Packers have poached in back-to-back years. Prior to Kendricks, Jared Cook enjoyed maybe his finest season as a NFL pro in Green Bay’s offense.
Over a 6 year career with the Rams, Kendricks amassed over 200 receptions, 2,000 yards, and 17 touchdowns. Green Bay adds a tough player who offers availability and a skill set that allows Kendricks to be moved around to do a little bit of everything.
