Pack­ers strike deals with their draft picks

Green Bay – The Green Bay Pack­ers used their last week be­fore the start of or­ga­nized team ac­tiv­i­ties to fi­nal­ize sign­ing their draft class.

Two days af­ter sign­ing first-round cor­ner­back Jaire Alexander, the Pack­ers an­nounced they signed sec­on­dround cor­ner­back Josh Jack­son and third-round in­side line­backer Oren Burks.

Alexander, the 18th over­all pick, re­ceived a four-year con­tract with an ap­prox­i­mated to­tal value of $12.1 mil­lion, per Spo­trac. It also comes with a fifthyear team op­tion.

Jack­son’s four-year deal rep­re­sents al­most $6.3 mil­lion in to­tal value, ac­cord­ing to Spo­trac. He was the 45th over­all pick and fourth cor­ner­back drafted last month.

Burks’ four-year deal is ex­pected to have a to­tal value of ap­prox­i­mately $3.3 mil­lion, per Spo­trac.

Be­fore this week, the Pack­ers pre­vi­ously an­nounced the sign­ing of fourthround re­ceiver J’Mon Moore, fifthround of­fen­sive line­man Cole Madi­son, fifth-round punter JK Scott, fifth-round re­ceiver Mar­quez Valdes-Scantling, sixth-round re­ceiver Equanimeous St. Brown, sev­enth-round de­fen­sive line­man James Looney, sev­enth-round

long snap­per Hunter Bradley and sev­enth-round line­backer Ken­dall Don­ner­son. Vo­gel to Browns: For­mer Pack­ers punter Justin Vo­gel, re­leased May 4 in the af­ter­math of Green Bay draft­ing Scott, was claimed off waivers May 7 by Cleve­land. Vo­gel set a Pack­ers record as a rookie last sea­son for net punt­ing av­er­age (41.6). He joins for­mer Pack­ers cor­ner­back Da­mar­i­ous Ran­dall and ex­ec­u­tives John Dorsey, Eliot Wolf and Alonzo High­smith in Cleve­land. Vo­gel’s fu­ture with the or­ga­ni­za­tion was up­ended the mo­ment gen­eral man­ager Brian Gutekunst used a fifth- round draft pick on Scott, a four-year starter at Alabama. Even if Vo­gel went through train­ing camp, and even if he kicked beau­ti­fully on every at­tempt, the chances of him mak­ing the 53-man ros­ter over a fifth-round pick were al­ways go­ing to be slim. Vo­gel asked for his re­lease, and Gutekunst hon­ored the re­quest.

“A lot of things go into those de­ci­sions,” McCarthy said.

“You go through all the dif­fer­ent op­tions you go through in camp. There is a fair­ness to Justin to give him an op­por­tu­nity out there to­day as op­posed to

come Au­gust (dur­ing ros­ter cuts). You weigh all those.”

Mean­while, for­mer Pack­ers backup quar­ter­back Joe Cal­la­han signed with the Ea­gles.

Grate­ful for the ad­vice: Alexander, the Pack­ers’ first-round pick, spoke to one of his for­mer cor­ner­backs coaches at Louisville. The coach told Alexander he was proud of his for­mer pupil and ex­cited to watch his ca­reer un­fold at Lam­beau Field.

The coach’s name is Ter­rell Buck­ley, a first-round pick by the Pack­ers in 1992.

“He was telling me con­grats,” Alexan- der said af­ter a prac­tice this month in­side the Don Hut­son Cen­ter. “He said he likes what I’ve been do­ing.”

Buck­ley, 46, is now the cor­ner­backs coach at Mis­sis­sippi State, where he works along­side for­mer Pack­ers wide re­ceivers coach Luke Getsy, now the of­fen­sive co­or­di­na­tor and re­ceivers coach for the Bull­dogs. But from 1992-’94 he was a cor­ner­back for the Pack­ers whose ten­ure in Green Bay was both brief and dis­ap­point­ing. Buck­ley had 10 in­ter­cep­tions in three years but his diminu­tive stature — he’s only 5-9 — led to an un­writ­ten rule that would be passed down by for­mer gen­eral man­ager Ron Wolf: The Pack­ers don’t draft cor­ner­backs smaller than 5-10½.

Which makes it fit­ting that from 2015-’16, the first two years of Alexander’s col­le­giate ca­reer, it was Buck­ley who was re­spon­si­ble for mold­ing a player the Pack­ers hope can trans­form their sec­ondary. Es­pe­cially since Alexander, who stands 5-10¼, breaks the rule cre­ated for his coach.

“T-Buck, he taught me a lot of tech­nique,” Alexander said. “As far as swag­ger goes, I tell T-Buck all the time, ‘I got my swag from T-Buck.’ So he knows that. He played with some swag­ger too, now, if you watched him.”

Alexander said Buck­ley de­scribed what it’s like to play in Green Bay, from the strong and sup­port­ive fan base to the com­mu­nity it­self. But even Buck­ley’s pep talk couldn’t pre­pare Alexander for his first glimpse of Wis­con­sin.

“Never in my life did I think I’d be

here in Wis­con­sin, so it’s an ex­pe­ri­ence,” Alexander said. “It’s def­i­nitely dif­fer­ent. Even the plane ride com­ing in, I’m like, ‘Man, there’s so many fields and stuff.’ I don’t know what to ex­pect. But it’s been pretty cool.”

Sheehy aboard: For­mer Wis­con­sin de­fen­sive end Conor Sheehy has signed as an un­drafted free agent, the Pack­ers said.

The 6-3, 295-pound Sheehy was a late ad­di­tion to the Pack­ers’ ros­ter af­ter two free agents who had agreed to sign were not added. The Pack­ers never an­nounced that Min­nesota State–Morehead tight end Da­mon Gib­son and Port­land State cor­ner­back Chris Seisay had signed, but their agents had con­firmed re­ports they were headed to Green Bay.

It’s pos­si­ble both failed their phys­i­cals.

Sheehy had taken a “lo­cal” pre-draft visit, which are lim­ited to play­ers who are from the Green Bay area or at­tended school in the state. They must pay for their own travel to the fa­cil­ity.

Sheehy, who at­tended Mil­wau­kee’s Mar­quette Univer­sity High School, started 33 games for the Badgers and fin­ished with 95 tack­les (13½ for loss).

Old col­lege try: The Pack­ers had 16 play­ers take part in the rookie ori­en­ta­tion on a try­out ba­sis ear­lier this month, in­clud­ing for­mer Wis­con­sin safety Joe Fer­gu­son. The oth­ers were quar­ter­back Nick Stevens (Colorado State); cor­ner­backs Mike Min­ter (Mid­dle Ten­nessee State) and Tray Mitchell (Eastern Illi­nois); run­ning backs Sher­man Badie (Tulane) and Anthony Philyaw (Howard); full­back Caleb Mel­ton (Cal Poly); tight ends Mar­cus Bryan (UNC-Wilmington) and Ryan Smith (Miami, Ohio); lineback­ers Greer Mar­tini (Notre Dame), Derek McCart­ney (Colorado), Ja­cob Onyechi (Air Force) and Xavier Thig­pen (Southern Mis­sis­sippi); end Mack Weaver (Eastern Illi­nois); guard R.J. Prince (North Carolina) and tackle Sunny Odogwu (UCLA). Af­ter the try­outs, the Pack­ers an­nounced the sign­ings of two of those play­ers: Mar­tini and Smith. Fer­gu­son started only a hand­ful of games at Wis­con­sin and posted mod­est stats: 48 to­tal tack­les and four in­ter­cep­tions in four years. But the try­out of­fered a chance for the for­mer Badger to im­press the coaches and scouts.

“I have great re­spect for the pro­gram and Barry Al­varez and Paul (Chryst) and the whole bunch down there,” McCarthy said. “I’m glad they’re here. Be­cause I know for a long time (for­mer Pack­ers gen­eral man­ager) Ted (Thompson) was scared to death to bring one into the build­ing. It’s great to have some Badgers in our pro­gram.

“I thought they did some re­ally nice things. You have to be think­ing about it, but you know they’re well-coached. You know they have some growth just be­cause they’re young. But, yeah, you al­ways like to see the home­town guys do a lit­tle bet­ter.” Burks’ skills suited for hy­brid role: Just about the time the Pack­ers were start­ing to in­te­grate Sean Richard­son into their de­fense as a third safety, the for­mer Van­der­bilt un­drafted free agent in­jured a cer­vi­cal disc for the sec­ond time and was put on in­jured re­serve.

It was 2015 and de­fen­sive co­or­di­na­tor Dom Capers was us­ing the 6-2, 216pound Richard­son in a hy­brid line­backer/safety po­si­tion, a pre­cur­sor to the role Mor­gan Burnett would play two sea­sons later.

In draft­ing Burks, the Van­der­bilt in­side line­backer the Pack­ers se­lected in the third round this year, Green Bay coaches may be en­vi­sion­ing a big­ger, quicker ver­sion of Richard­son. The 6-3, 233-pound Burks played safety at Van­der­bilt through his sopho­more sea­son and comes to the Pack­ers with ath­letic traits sim­i­lar to Richard­son’s.

“Def­i­nitely ver­sa­til­ity, my move­ment skills and just know­ing the game from a lot of dif­fer­ent per­spec­tives,” Burks said of his skill set dur­ing a break at rookie ori­en­ta­tion camp. “So that ver­sa­til­ity, com­ing to line­backer, that’s a very big as­set for me.”

What sep­a­rates Burks from Richard­son, be­sides 17 pounds, is lat­eral quick­ness. His times in the 20-yard shut­tle and the three-cone drill at the com­bine were far bet­ter than Richard­son’s de­spite the weight dif­fer­ence.

Burks started out play­ing both in­side line­backer po­si­tions dur­ing rookie ori­en­ta­tion and will likely stay there on the depth chart. But in re­al­ity, he’s prob­a­bly go­ing to be a big­ger ver­sion of that hy­brid player Capers was start­ing to em­ploy.

New co­or­di­na­tor Mike Pet­tine is likely to find a place for Burks in nickel and dime sit­u­a­tions if he isn’t a full-time starter.

“I re­ally felt com­fort­able be­ing around the ball and be­ing able to be in on all the plays, with the pass and run de­fense as well,” Burks said of his se­nior year. “I re­ally feel like my game got taken to the next level. My pro­duc­tion went up.

“I was able to show how I played and run side­line to side­line, and also make plays.” Train­ing day: Rookie wide re­ceiver Equanimeous St. Brown’s fa­ther is a two-time Mr. Uni­verse, so it stands to rea­son that his son prob­a­bly has learned a lot about weight train­ing over the years.

On draft day, St. Brown said he played last sea­son at Notre Dame at 203 pounds but had since put on 15 pounds and felt his 6-5 frame could carry even more. St. Brown said that de­spite his fa­ther

John’s ex­pe­ri­ence, he did not in­tend to ask the Pack­ers if he could fol­low his own strength and con­di­tion­ing plan.

“I fol­lowed Notre Dame’s pro­gram,” St. Brown said. “No, I’ll do what­ever they tell me to do.” Another open­ing on scout­ing staff: Al­ready in need of re­place­ments for two per­son­nel ex­ec­u­tives who de­fected to Cleve­land ear­lier this year, Gutekunst must find another scout as well.

Alonzo Dot­son, a col­lege scout for the Pack­ers, is leav­ing the or­ga­ni­za­tion for a job with the New York Jets, a source con­firmed. Dot­son’s ex­act ti­tle with the Jets is un­clear, though the fran­chise is in need of both a na­tional scout and a di­rec­tor of col­lege scout­ing, ac­cord­ing to Neil Strat­ton of In­side The League.

Dot­son joined the Pack­ers in 2013 af­ter two sea­sons with the Hous­ton Cougars, where he worked with de­fen­sive qual­ity con­trol. His re­spon­si­bil­i­ties with the Cougars in­cluded work­ing with the de­fen­sive line and lineback­ers, co­or­di­nat­ing the of­fen­sive scout team, iden­ti­fy­ing the per­son­nel pack­ages of op­po­nents and var­i­ous ad­min­is­tra­tive du­ties.

The loss of Dot­son fol­lows the de­par­tures of ex­ec­u­tives High­smith and Wolf, both of whom joined the Browns to work with Dorsey. They were two of the higher-rank­ing per­son­nel men for gen­eral man­ager Ted Thompson, and Gutekunst said in Jan­uary that he would need to hire re­in­force­ments later this year.

“I think there will be some ad­di­tions I’m sure at some point, prob­a­bly af­ter the draft when most of that move­ment hap­pens,” Gutekunst said at the Se­nior Bowl. “We’ve got plenty of hands on deck right now, so I’m not wor­ried about it right now. But at some point I’m sure we’ll have some move­ment, you know?”

While some of Gutekunst’s new hires will come from out­side the or­ga­ni­za­tion, there is also the po­ten­tial for in­ter­nal pro­mo­tion. Di­rec­tor of col­lege scout­ing Jon-Eric Sullivan and di­rec­tor of pro per­son­nel John Wo­j­ciechowski have taken on added re­spon­si­bil­i­ties since the front of­fice shakeup. Both men could be el­e­vated to new ti­tles if Gutekunst was pleased with their work dur­ing the pre-draft process.

Another can­di­date for pro­mo­tion could be scout­ing as­sis­tant Bran­dian

Ross, a for­mer safety who spent por­tions of two sea­sons with the Pack­ers in 2011-’12. Ross came through the Pack­ers’ scout­ing in­tern­ship pro­gram last year and was hired full time by Gutekunst in

Jan­uary, this af­ter Thompson had al­ready ex­tended Ross’ in­tern­ship to cover the en­tirety of last sea­son. El­e­vat­ing Ross to col­lege scout, where he would re­place Dot­son, could be the log­i­cal next step in his de­vel­op­ment. Rodgers next up for deal af­ter Ryan

gets ex­ten­sion: Gutekunst said in Fe­bru­ary he wanted to sign Aaron Rodgers to a con­tract ex­ten­sion as soon as pos­si­ble. That time might be get­ting closer. A big hur­dle was cleared May 3 when At­lanta Fal­cons quar­ter­back Matt Ryan agreed to a con­tract ex­ten­sion. ESPN re­ported that Ryan agreed to a five-year ex­ten­sion worth ap­prox­i­mately $150 mil­lion, in­clud­ing $100 mil­lion in guar­an­tees.

The Pack­ers and Rodgers want the im­mi­nent ex­ten­sion to fea­ture the largest per-year av­er­age in the NFL since Rodgers is con­sid­ered one of the top quar­ter­backs, ar­guably sec­ond only to New Eng­land’s Tom Brady, who was the league MVP last sea­son and led the Pa­tri­ots to their eighth Su­per Bowl ap­pear­ance since 2002.

If Rodgers had signed his deal first, it’s pos­si­ble Ryan’s would have sur- passed his NFC coun­ter­part. So, with­out fac­ing an im­me­di­ate dead­line — Rodgers is un­der con­tract through 2019 — the two sides waited for the Fal­cons to make the first move.

In an in­ter­view with ProFoot­bal­lTalk Live, Gutekunst ac­knowl­edged he wanted to study how other quar­ter­back deals were be­ing struc­tured, es­pe­cially af­ter Min­nesota signed free agent Kirk

Cousins to a fully guar­an­teed three­year, $84 mil­lion con­tract in March.

The Pack­ers do not want to give Rodgers a fully guar­an­teed deal and prob­a­bly were hop­ing Ryan didn’t re­ceive one. If the re­port on his salary fig­ures are true, then the Pack­ers can make a case that a more tra­di­tional struc­ture is in or­der, one that fea­tures a siz­able per­cent­age of guar­an­teed money paid in sign­ing and ros­ter bonuses.

Gutekunst said Rodgers’ deal could get done soon.

“We’re pretty con­fi­dent that this is some­thing that’s tak­ing its nor­mal course, its nor­mal time,” Gutekunst told PFT Live.

Another con­sid­er­a­tion could be a Brady con­tract ex­ten­sion. He is in the sec­ond year of a $41 mil­lion con­tract and is con­sid­ered vastly un­der­paid. How­ever, the Pa­tri­ots prob­a­bly wouldn’t sign Brady to a deal as long as Rodgers’ and the per-year av­er­age wouldn’t be as big a fac­tor.

Rodgers is en­ter­ing the fourth year of a five-year, $110 mil­lion con­tract ex­ten­sion he signed April 26, 2013.

He is sched­uled to make a base salary of $19.8 mil­lion this year and $20 mil­lion in 2019. He has per-game ros­ter bonuses each year worth a max­i­mum of $600,000 and work­out bonuses of $500,000.

His salary-cap num­ber for 2018 is $20.9 mil­lion. ‘Awe­some sur­prise’: Ten­nis star Bethanie Mat­tek-Sands is a se­ri­ous Pack­ers fan, and now she has the hel­met to prove it.

The Olympic gold medal­ist was re­cently sur­prised with a hel­met signed by Rodgers. In a video pro­duced by the Women’s Ten­nis As­so­ci­a­tion, Mat­tekSands can’t be­lieve it when she reads the au­to­graph: “Best wishes for your come­back sea­son.”

“And he spelled my name right,” she said.

Mat­tek-Sands, one of the world’s top

dou­bles play­ers, suf­fered a grue­some knee in­jury at Wim­ble­don last July. She re­turned to tour­na­ment play in March. Rodgers, who broke his col­lar­bone in Oc­to­ber, is also poised for his come­back sea­son this year.

“You’ve al­ways been an in­spi­ra­tion for me,” she tells Rodgers in the video. “I be­lieve in you, and I feel like you be­lieve in me, too. So let’s do this, 2018, here we go.”

A bio for Mat­tek-Sands on NBC’s web­site for the 2016 Olympics lists her hob­bies as cars, shop­ping, cook­ing, hik­ing and watch­ing the Pack­ers. She was born in Rochester, Minn., and spent part of her child­hood in Neenah.

She told Sports Il­lus­trated in 2011 that her all-time fa­vorite ath­lete is Brett Favre and that her hus­band, Justin Sands, a for­mer D-line­man at the Univer­sity of Albany, kind of looks like him.

House deal: Cor­ner­back Davon House signed a one-year, $1.005 mil­lion deal that fea­tured a veteran min­i­mum salary-cap ben­e­fit.

Un­der veteran min­i­mum rules, House re­ceives the min­i­mum base salary for a player with seven-to-nine years of ex­pe­ri­ence ($915,000) and can re­ceive up to $90,000 in guar­an­teed money. The Pack­ers gave House the full guar­an­teed amount.

House counts only $720,000 against the cap un­der the veteran min­i­mum ben­e­fit, which was cre­ated so that older play­ers wouldn’t be passed over be­cause they have high min­i­mum salaries and would count more against the cap than a younger player.

Author­i­ties: Slay­ing pos­si­bly linked to killing of for­mer Pack­ers camp player: A man whose bul­let-rid­dled body was found dumped along a ru­ral road in Alabama ap­par­ently was killed in re­tal­i­a­tion for the slay­ing of a for­mer Pack­ers player, author­i­ties said May 2.

A state­ment from the Jef­fer­son County Sheriff ’s De­part­ment said Dar

ryl Thomas, 21, of Cen­ter Point ap­peared to have been killed in ret­ri­bu­tion for the shoot­ing death of for­mer Pack­ers de­fen­sive line­man Car­los Gray, 25.

Thomas’ body was found along a road near Birm­ing­ham on May 1, the day af­ter Gray’s body was found in his home, also near Birm­ing­ham.

No charges were filed im­me­di­ately in ei­ther death, but four sus­pects were in cus­tody fol­low­ing Thomas’ slay­ing and at least one was be­lieved to have been a close friend of Gray, author­i­ties said.

Gray, who played at North Carolina State, signed with the Pack­ers as an un­drafted free agent in 2014. He was cut by the team at the end of train­ing camp.

Author­i­ties said Gray’s girl­friend re­turned home from an out­ing to find him dead and called po­lice. Of­fi­cers dis­cov­ered mar­i­juana, scales, a hand­gun and an AK-47 ri­fle with a high-ca­pac­ity mag­a­zine in the home, the state­ment said.

The next morn­ing, ac­cord­ing to author­i­ties, deputies re­ceived a call about a re­ported kid­nap­ping at a con­ve­nience store. A man who wasn’t iden­ti­fied by po­lice said he and Thomas had been ab­ducted at gun­point by sev­eral men. The man told of­fi­cers he es­caped at an in­ter­sec­tion but that Thomas did not, of­fi­cials say.

A passer-by later found Thomas’ body along a dirt road, and author­i­ties de­ter­mined he had been shot more than once.

Po­lice said mur­der charges and kid­nap­ping charges were likely. Kwik Trip added as gate spon­sor: Kwik Trip, which seems to have a con­ve­nience store at every in­ter­sec­tion in every town in Wis­con­sin, is now at Lam­beau Field.

The La Crosse-based com­pany re- placed Ver­i­zon as a gate spon­sor at Lam­beau. Kwik Trip’s Cafe Karuba cof­fee and its hot choco­late will be sold through­out the sta­dium, and the com­pany’s Kwik Re­wards pro­gram will in­clude Green Bay Pack­ers-re­lated deals.

Terms of the deal were not dis­closed, but Pack­ers Pres­i­dent and CEO Mark

Mur­phy said gate spon­sor­ships do not open up of­ten and are a key rev­enue gen­er­a­tor for the team.

He said the Pack­ers ap­proached Kwik Trip about ex­pand­ing their part­ner­ship to in­clude a larger spon­sor­ship. The or­ga­ni­za­tions worked to­gether on a mar­ket­ing deal last year.

“Our sales and busi­ness de­vel­op­ment staff do a great job. They’re al­ways try­ing to work with com­pa­nies to help grow their busi­nesses, and spon­sor­ships are an im­por­tant source of funds for the team,” Mur­phy said. “We won’t sell nam­ing rights for the sta­dium as long as I’m here, so this is a way to build up part­ner­ships.”

Kwik Trip also will spon­sor the In­stant Win Tower at the Lam­beau Field Live trav­el­ing ex­hibit that is part of the Pack­ers’ 100 Sea­sons cel­e­bra­tion.

“Kwik Re­wards will pro­vide Pack­ers fans with even greater in-store sav­ings along with op­por­tu­ni­ties to win tick­ets, mer­chan­dise, gift cards and Pack­ers game-day ex­pe­ri­ences through­out the year,” said Mark Meis­ner, Kwik Trip di­rec­tor of mar­ket­ing and ad­ver­tis­ing.

Kwik Trip ex­panded ag­gres­sively through­out Wis­con­sin in re­cent years. It

now has 15 stores in the Green Bay metro area with a 16th un­der de­vel­op­ment. It opened its first metro gas sta­tion-con­ve­nience store in 2003. Its ex­pan­sion ac­cel­er­ated in the last five years.

Kwik Trip re­places Ver­i­zon on the Lam­beau Field en­trances, mak­ing all gate spon­sors Wis­con­sin com­pa­nies.

“The Wis­con­sin-based com­pa­nies as­pect is amaz­ing. We’re re­ally pleased to be able to part­ner with a com­pany like Kwik Trip,” Mur­phy said. Starr’s 1967 Corvette up for auc

tion: Bart Starr’s Su­per Bowl I MVP Corvette took an in­ter­est­ing road from the Los An­ge­les Coli­seum to the In­di­ana State Fair­grounds in In­di­anapo­lis, where the ven­er­a­ble sports car was sched­uled to be auc­tioned May 19. The green 1967 Corvette is owned by

Michael An­der­son of Thun­der Val­ley Clas­sic Cars in St. Joseph, Minn. He ac­quired it from another owner in the 1980s.

Me­cum Auc­tions of Wal­worth, which bills it­self as the world leader in sell­ing col­lec­tor cars, vin­tage and an­tique mo­tor­cy­cles, and Road Art, is auc­tion­ing the car on con­sign­ment. As of May 21, how­ever, the web­site fea­tur­ing the car in­cluded a ban­ner that read “The BID Goes On...”

The car had been in stor­age for sev­eral years and needed restora­tion when An­der­son ac­quired it. He de­cided on a sym­pa­thetic restora­tion that re­spected the car’s his­tory.

Dur­ing the restora­tion process, An­der­son un­cov­ered the tank sticker, clearly stat­ing, “Cour­tesy De­liv­ery: B. Starr,” as well as dis­cov­er­ing an AFLNFL World Cham­pi­onship Game ink pen un­der­neath the pas­sen­ger seat.

Ac­cord­ing to Me­cum, An­der­son re­moved the body from the frame to clean and re­con­di­tion the un­der­car­riage and sus­pen­sion, and re­placed the body mounts, sus­pen­sion rub­bers, u-joints, seals and bear­ings. The brake sys­tem was over­hauled and the calipers were up­graded with stain­less-steel pis­ton sleeves for dura­bil­ity.

The driv­e­line is orig­i­nal: the en­gine has never been dis­as­sem­bled and re­tains the orig­i­nal gas­kets and paint.

A new De­witts re­pro­duc­tion ra­di­a­tor was in­stalled, but the orig­i­nal was re­tained to ac­com­pany the car.
