Joe Philbin is heading back to the Green Bay Packers.
Philbin, who was a member of the Packers’ coaching staff from 2003-11 and was the offensive coordinator from 2007-11 before taking the head coaching job with the Miami Dolphins, will be the new offensive coordinator, according to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport.
Philbin returns to the franchise after an unsuccessful stint as the head coach in Miami, where he fired early in the 2015 season and finished his tenure with a 24-28 record.
Philbin spent the past two seasons as the offensive line coach for the Indianapolis Colts.
Packers Releasing Nick Perry
Perry was due to make $11 million this season with a roster bonus of $4.8 million slated for March 15th, but with the Packers’ additions in free agency, Perry became expendable.
Injuries have limited Perry’s time on the field, which likely led to the decision to move on.
Packers Signing Preston Smith
Smith will get $16 million at signing and earn $27.5 million over the first 2 years of his new deal.
Smith collected 53 tackles, four sacks and one interception last season for the Washington Redskins.
Packers Waive Antonio Morrison
Morrison was acquired from the Indianapolis Colts last summer and appeared in all 16 games for the Packers collecting 48 total tackles and one sack in 2018.
There is a chance that Morrison could return to Green Bay at a cheaper rate than the $2.025 million he would have counted against the cap.
