Pасkerѕ LT Dаvіd Bаkhtіаrі Sendѕ Fаnѕ Into Frenzy Wіth Perрlexіng Announсement

The Green Bay Packers and left tackle David Bakhtiari have had a tumultuous last two years. Bakhtiari will be unavailable to the Green Bay Packers the rest of the 2023 NFL season. The left knee he had surgically repaired has developed a cartilage issue that will require a fifth operation. The Packers’ Week One win over the Chicago Bears may have been Bakhtiari’s last game ever as a Packer.

Today, Bakhtiari sent fans into a frenzy with an extremely cryptic announcement on X (Twitter).

Green Bay Packers LT David Bakhtiari Sends Fans Into Frenzy With Latest X (Twitter) Announcement

David Bakhtiari took to Twitter to make a very cryptic announcement:

Bakhtiari carries a cap hit of more than $40 million in 2024, but a dead cap hit of only $19 million. Bakhtiari is unlikely to be retained by the Packers beyond this season, even if his knee did not act up again.

In an interview with reporters, the former All-Pro left tackle confirmed that he intends to play in 2024, whether with the Packers or another team.

Packers Fans Speculate What Bakhtiari’s Tweet Could Be About

Packers fans certainly had a field day with Bakhtiari’s announcement:

Whether it was something personal, something professional, or a mix of the two, it certainly sent fans down a rabbit hole of what it could’ve meant. As per ESPN’s Dan Graziano, the team may have to cut running back Aaron Jones and left tackle David Bakhtiari in the offseason:

“The Packers are middle-of-the-pack in projected 2024 cap space, but Jones turns 29 in December and is having trouble staying on the field this season with a hamstring injury. We know the Packers were poking around on Jonathan Taylor when he made his offseason trade demand, too.

Jones will have one year left after this season on a deal he had to rework this past offseason to avoid being cut. The Packers would save $11.45 million next year in cap space if they made him a post-June 1 cut.

David Bakhtiari is the most obvious cap-saving move for Green Bay, but his circumstances are different and well-publicized. Moving on from Jones would be a future-focused decision and one more piece of evidence that it’s tough for a running back in these salary cap streets.”
