Bears-Pack will start season; Pats open on SNF

The Bears and Packers will kick off the NFL's 100th regular season as the league has elected to forgo having the Super Bowl champs host the first game of the season.

The Chicago Bears will host the Green Bay Packers in the 2019 NFL opener at Soldier Field on Sept. 5. This will be the second consecutive year the Packers and Bears have met in their respective season openers. Last year, the Packers rallied from 17-0 deficit to win 24-23 at Lambeau Field. Including playoffs, the Packers and Bears franchises have met 198 times, the most common matchup in NFL history. The Packers own a 97-95-6 edge in the series. The Bears won the last meeting between the two teams last season, and haven't won consecutive games against the Packers since 2007.

Former Packers S Kentrell Brice's contract with the Bucs was a one-year, $987,500 deal. Base salary of $800,000 with up to $187,500 in per-game roster bonuses ($11,718.75 for each game on the 46-man game-day roster). The Packers chose not to tender him as a restricted free agent. The low tender would have been worth $2.025 million.

Geronimo Allison's one year deal with the Packers is worth $2.8 million and included a $750,000 signing bonus. Base salary of $1.45 million, up to $500,000 in per-game roster bonuses and a $100,000 workout bonus. He opted to sign that and stay with the Packers rather than wait to see if there were any restricted free agent offer sheets. If there weren't, he would've played on the $2.025 million low RFA tender that did not include any up front money.

With the departure of Clay Matthews, the only remaining Packers from the Super Bowl XVL team are: Aaron Rodgers, Mason Crosby, Tramon Williams and Bryan Bulaga. And not a single coach is left from that staff.



Mina talks to former NFL LB Kirk Morrison about the hype train for the Browns (3:15), the angriest looking coach in the NFL (9:55), why the sophomore slump for QBs is a real thing (31:50), what the Packers should do to help Aaron Rodgers (49:09), the Costco portion of free agency, and if he'd rather give up cake or pie (1:09:54). Plus, Mina discusses why she's here for the fish tank (11:05) and the time she awkwardly got in a revolving door with a 2-time Super Bowl champ (1:04:48).

Another farewell from the Packers, this one to Randall Cobb after the No. 6 all-time franchise receiving leader signed with the Cowboys on Tuesday. Said GM Brian Gutekunst via the team website: "For the past eight seasons, Randall was a terrific leader and great player for the Packers. He was part of some very memorable moments and contributed to a lot of great wins. We thank Randall, his wife, Aiyda, and the rest of their family for all they have given to the organization and our community. Randall will always be a member of the Packers family."

The Packers say thanks and goodbye to Clay Matthews, their all-time sacks leader who signed with the Rams on Tuesday. Said GM Brian Gutekunst via the team website: "We want to thank Clay for all that he has contributed to the Packers over the past 10 seasons. As the franchise's all-time sack leader and an integral part of Green Bay's Super Bowl XLV championship, he will be remembered as one of the greatest players in the history of the organization. Clay will always be a member of the Packers family. We wish him, his wife, Casey, and the rest of their family all the best moving forward."

Ex-Packers LB Matthews to Rams on 2-year deal

Clay Matthews, a six-time Pro Bowl LB who has played his entire career with the Packers, has agreed to terms with the Rams on a two-year contract.

Rob Demovsky ESPN Staff Writer 

Two long-time Packers move on within hours. On the same day, Clay Matthews signs with the Rams and Randall Cobb with the Cowboys. It became fairly obvious during the season that they would move on, but both were close with QB Aaron Rodgers so it could have an impact in the locker room if not on the field.

On the day Randall Cobb is leaving for Dallas, Geronimo Allison's re-signing with the Packers became official, according to the NFL transactions. The Packers still need a slot receiver. Their top-three as it stands now -- Davante Adams, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Geronimo Allison all are better suited to play the X or the Z.

Cowboys agree to 1-year deal with WR Cobb

The Dallas Cowboys have agreed to a one-year, $5 million deal with veteran wide receiver Randall Cobb, filling a need after the team lost slot receiver Cole Beasley in free agency.

Bashaud Breeland's deal with the Chiefs includes a $1.15 million signing bonus, an $805,000 base salary and a $45,000 workout bonus. In addition to that $2 million, he could earn up to $3 million more in incentives. Last year, he took home $608,823 in his partial season with the Packers.

The Packers had former Giants safety Curtis Riley in for a free-agent visit on Monday, ESPN's Field Yates reported. He was a 16-game starter last season. Even if they don't sign Riley, it's an indication that they're still interested in adding to that group even after adding Adrian Amos last week. Meanwhile, former Packers S Kentrell Brice, who was not tendered as a restricted free agent, has signed with the Buccaneers.
