Bryan Bulaga in Packers’ plans, but pay-cut issue loiters

Bryan Bulaga

General manager Brian Gutekunst waited until the fifth round to take an offensive lineman — and it was one the Packers see as a guard — it made sense that he essentially gave assurances that Bulaga will be on the roster whenever he’s cleared to return from the reconstruction of his torn ACL. Betting on NFL is looking forward to the Green Bay Packers’ 2018-2019 season.

Bulaga, 29, blew out his right knee on November 6 against the Detroit Lions.

Inquiries about Bulaga’s future not only center around his age and injury history but also his contract. He has two years remaining on a five-year, $33.75 million deal. That includes $6.75 million in salary and bonuses in each of the next two seasons. Bulaga’s salary-cap number of $7,903,125 ranks eighth-highest on the team for 2018.

“We see him playing inside,” Packers director of college scouting Jon-Eric Sullivan said after they picked Madison. “We think he has some versatility, but if you pin me down, he’s probably going to start [out] at guard.”
