Allison will sign his exclusive-rights tender with the Packers before free agency opens Thursday, ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports.

As an undrafted rookie out of Illinois last season, Allison didn't crack the active roster until Week 8 and, as expected, it then took him a little while to find a groove within the Green Bay offense. However, he emerged as a legitimate factor by year's end in which he caught 13 balls for 222 yards and a score across the Packers' final two regular season contests and three playoff games. Looking ahead to 2017, Allison will look to solidify the No. 4 receiving role behind Jordy Nelson, Davante Adams and Randall Cobb.
