The Green Bay Packers aren't going to make a Cullen Jenkins replacement appear out of thin air, so they're creating a big competition/rotation at 3-4 defensive end. One of those players who will join that competition/rotation in training camp is Daniel Muir, previously a 4-3 defensive tackle. When he was signed, we didn't know the terms of the contract, but the always connected Aaron Wilson has the answers.
Packers DT Daniel Muir's one-year deal worth $700,000, no bonus. Counts as just $540,000 against cap under minimum salary benefit per source— Aaron Wilson (@RavensInsider) March 30, 2012
At minimum salary with no bonus, Muir is a bargain. He hasn't been a consistent NFL contributor and had to deal with some injuries last year, but he's played 43 games in the NFL and he has top-notch size. If you find a guy who fits your system and who is willing to sign a one-year, minimum salary deal, there's no reason not to take a chance on him. The competition for PT between Muir, Anthony Hargrove, Mike Neal, Jarius Wynn and a rookie or two is going to be fierce.
