LB Jayrone Elliott Re-Signs With Packers After Visit With Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers hosted two free agents on Monday and one of them has decided to re-sign with his old team.

According to Rob Demovsky of linebacker Jayrone Elliott will return to the Green Bay Packers on a one-year, $1.6 million deal, which is a little less than the low restricted free agent tender the Packers decided not to give him.

After re-signing with the Packers, Elliott talked about his free agent visits with other teams on Twitter.

“Great meetings with some historic organizations especially meeting Mike Tomlin and Joey Porter… but Green Bay is home!” he wrote.

In all likelihood, the Steelers, at best, probably only offered Elliott a one-year contract for the minimum in addition to a meager signing bonus of $80,000 or less.

As for the Steelers other free agent visitor on Monday, wide receiver Justin Hunter, it’s unclear right now if he decided to sign a contract. The former Tennessee Titans draft pick also visited with the New England Patriots a few days ago. Hunter played last season with the Buffalo Bills.
