The Packers added two first-round picks to their defense on Thursday night and they turned their attention to a pair of 2019 defensive first-rounders on Friday.

According to multiple reports from ESPN, the team is exercising their fifth-year options on the contracts of edge rusher Rashan Gary and safety Darnell Savage. Gary was the 12th pick in 2019 while Savage went 21st overall.

Gary set a career high with 9.5 sacks during the 2021 regular season and added two more in the team’s playoff loss to the 49ers. Friday’s move guarantees his $10.892 million salary for the 2023 season.

Savage has started every game he’s played since coming to Green Bay and has 193 tackles, eight interceptions, a sack, two forced fumbles, and a fumble recovery. He’s now set to make $7.901 million in his option year.
