-- The Green Bay Packers already made it a point to retain Geronimo Allison, issuing an original-round tender on Wednesday to keep the undrafted wide receiver in town for 2019.
But that $2.025 million dollar tender gives other teams the opportunity to pursue Allison, an unrestricted free agent. On Friday, the Packers had to fight a few of them off -- but not for very long.

Several teams prepared offer sheets to swipe Allison, according to Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com, with which the Packers would be given a certain number of days to match. But the Packers heightened the initial original-round tender they offered him earlier in the week and constructed a new, one-year deal with additional incentives.

Several teams have been mulling an offer sheet for Packers RFA WR Geronimo Allison but he will return to Green Bay on a new one-year deal. The agreed-upon contract will pay him more than the RFA tender he was offered with guarantees and the chance to earn additional incentives
— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) March 15, 2019
Undrafted in 2016, Allison ascended into a training camp star before eventually contributing in his rookie season. He found a way to gain the trust of quarterback Aaron Rodgers and sculpted himself into one of his primary receiving targets.

Allison was on pace for a 1,000-yard season in 2018 before a barrage of injuries ultimately landed him on injured reserve. Whether it was a concussion, a hamstring or the torn adductor that did him in, Allison fought through but only played in five games.

Those five games were enough evidence for the Packers to keep Allison in their plans moving forward, however, it could eliminate the possibility of a return for fellow receiver Randall Cobb.

Allison agreed to the terms of his new contract without fielding any offers from any of the other interested teams, essentially confirming his desire to remain in Green Bay for as long as he has the power to, calling the city "his home."

"If it was up to me, I would want to be here and stay consistent here throughout my career," he told Jim Owczarski of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "But, just going over the years, I understand I have a strong faith and a strong work ethic and my talent, my production; that playing in this league is all about mental toughness and then production."

I am incredulous. Which teams? At what price? Did they offer or not?

Sounds like a rumor from the agent or elsewhere with the goal of making Allison look like a loyal soldier and the team look like it got strong value.

I am kind of glad they signed him, but I not buying the story.

Just because they prepared offer sheets doesn't mean they ever actually extended the offers.

The answer is 7....just because they 'decided to jump, that doesn't mean they had actually had jumped.

They were simply planning to prepare offer sheets.
