Drafted No. 12 in the 2019 NFL Draft, Green Bay Packers linebacker Rashan Gary has established himself as one of the game’s premiere edge rushers.

Rashan Gary Salary

The Green Bay Packers outside linebacker is still on his first contract after being drafted in 2019. Gary signed a four-year, $15,877,312 deal with the Packers, including a $9,567,136 signing bonus, with $15,877,312  guaranteed and an average annual salary of $3,969,328.

Gary’s deal was fully guaranteed, and his fifth-year option was exercised heading into 2023.

Rashan Gary Cap Hit

The 25-year-old carried a $5,051,872 cap hit in 2022. Gary’s 2023 cap hit will be $10,892,000, but he’s recovering from a torn ACL and isn’t expected to start the season on time.

Rashan Gary Potential Extension

Gary is one of the game’s best young talents at the position, but there are now some question marks surrounding him heading into his fifth year in the league due to his recent ACL injury. Still, the talent is highly evident, and he’s already compiled 22.5 sacks in 56 career games.

Gary is sitting in some talented company regarding comparable players who signed new deals at similar career trajectories. Players such as T.J. Watt, Maxx Crosby, Bradley Chubb, and Leonard Williams are close to what Gary will likely be looking for.
