Hall's signing leaves Packers with top three picks unsigned

The Green Bay Packers announced today that they have signed fullback Korey Hall, a sixth-round selection in the 2007 NFL draft.

With Hall's signing, only Green Bay's top three picks remain unsigned - defensive tackle Justin Harrell (first round), running back Brandon Jackson (second round), and wide receiver James Jones (third round).

Like linebacker Desmond Bishop and kicker Mason Crosby, Hall reportedly received a four-year contract. Published reports have indicated that the contracts for all three sixth round picks include minimum salaries for the first three years ($285,000 in 2007, $370,000 in 2008 and $460,000 in 2009). In the fourth year, the contracts could escalate to the low restricted free agent tender for that year.

Hall, the 191st overall pick in April's draft, received a signing bonus of $94,450, according to a source with access to NFL Players Association contract information. Bishop, who was taken at No. 192, received a $94,200 signing bonus. Crosby, who was picked 193rd, received a $93,950 signing bonus. Signing bonuses are usually paid to the player upfront.

Hall was a four-year starter at linebacker and a prominent special teams performer at Boise State. He is being converted to fullback as a pro while continuing his roles on special teams.
