PRO FOOTBALL DAILY REPORT : AROUND THE NFL : Packers’ Bennett Might Sit Out Season

Associated Press

The agent for Green Bay Packer linebacker Tony Bennett said that two days of meetings with team officials brought no compromise in the 75-day stalemate, and that Bennett might sit out the season.

“I don’t anticipate anything happening for quite some time,” agent Pat Dye Jr. told the Green Bay Press-Gazette.

Dye said he proposed an offer that would have paid Bennett an average of $1.5 million per season over two years. Reports said Bennett had earlier been seeking a three-year deal averaging $2.1 million and that the Packers were offering a three-year contract between $1.2 million and $1.3 million.
