Darnell Savage is a safety entering his fifth season with Green Bay Packers. He signed a four-year contract that expires after the coming 2023 season.

Darnell Savage Salary

Savage’s salary for the 2023 season is $7,901,000 with a matching cap hit. This will be the final year of his contract, and he will be an unrestricted free agent following the 2023-2024 campaign.

Darnell Savage Cap Hit

Darnell Savage will have a cap hit of $7.9 million this year.

Darnell Savage Potential Extension

Savage struggled at safety last season, but his ability to contribute as a slot corner is helpful. The Packers save no money by cutting him, and he likely has very little trade value. Green Bay could let him play the season under the current contract and then walk as a free agent.

They could also attempt to work out an extension, similar to what the team did with running back Aaron Jones. The extension could lower the cap hit that Savage’s contract has and allow the Packers more cap space to operate within the free-agent market.
