With the Green Bay Packers faithful waiting patiently for general manager Brian Gutekunst to go out and make a big splash in free agency, Tuesday's news it not what folks were hoping for. That's because cornerback Kevin King is coming back on a one-year, $6 million deal.
Excuse us? Yep, despite a postseason to forget, King is all set to return to Green Bay. As you might imagine, people all over Wisconsin are not happy about this move.
With NFL insider Tom Pelissero breaking the news, the comments on his tweet are full of cheeseheads who are furious with Gutekunst. In the NFC Championship Game this winter, King got absolutely lit up by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Packers of course went on to lose that game and Tampa Bay ended up winning the Super Bowl.
Come next season, Green Bay has hopes of getting back to the NFC Championship Game, but this time coming out on top. This King news certainly won't instill much inspiration among the fanbase that will happen.
