"We've enjoyed our time out here so far, enjoyed being with the team and starting the rebuilding process and being a part of that".
The Packers didn't exactly give him anywhere near the same offer for the 2018 season, leading to his departure to Oakland.
The Oakland Raiders have re-signed exclusive rights free agent LB Jason Cabinda and signed unrestricted free agent G Chaz Green, the club announced Friday. With the agreement in place and the Raiders set to return to Oakland, the league can move forward with planning all 32 teams' schedules.
