Not going to lie. We will be livid if our boy Johnny Jolly is not re-signed by the Green Bay Packers this offseason. And now we have even more reason to be livid if that doesn’t happen.
Jolly has been cleared by doctors for action.

Jolly suffered a neck injury late in 2013 against Dallas. He missed the final two weeks of the regular season and the playoff game. He then had spinal fusion surgery on January 10. A little over three months later he’s apparently good to go, or at least the neck injury is.
Jolly had a bone graft taken from his hip that was used to repair his neck. The latter still isn’t fully healed.
There should seemingly be little in the way of Jolly getting a new contract. He wants to play in 2014 and he isn’t going to cost much.
Back in February, the Packers were in “wait-and-see mode” on Jolly. Well, now that he’s good to go medically, let’s get it done.
