A recent report indicated that Packers right tackle Bryan Bulaga refused to take a pay cut after being approached about doing so and that can often be a precursor to getting dropped off the roster altogether.
There’s been no roster move involving Bulaga in Green Bay, however, and General Manager Brian Gutekunst said at the conclusion of the draft on Saturday that he doesn’t plan on making one in the future.
