If money talks, Matt Orzech will be the new long snapper for the Green Bay Packers in 2023 and beyond.
According to Aaron Wilson, Orzech’s three-year deal with the Packers includes a $300,000 signing bonus and veteran minimum salaries in 2023, 2024 and 2025.
The $300,000 will be prorated across three years on the cap, giving him a cap number of $1,180,000 in 2023 (assuming no void years were used).
Orzech brings three years and 50 games of past experience as an NFL long snapper to Green Bay. He snapped for the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2019 and the Los Angeles Rams in 2021 and 2022.
Orzech joins Jack Coco – the Packers’ long snapper last season – as the two players at the position on the current offseason roster, suggesting a competition will be staged across the offseason workout program and training camp. But Orzech’s new deal certainly gives him the financial lead right away.
Coco had a cap number of $705,000 last year. It will bump up to $870,000 in 2023.
