Packers Sign Rest of Draft Class

Packers Sign Rest of Draft Class

Before the current collective bargaining agreement was approved following the 2011 lockout, it was a big victory for a team to have all of its draft picks signed before the start of training camp.

This year, the Green Bay Packers signed all nine draft picks before the start of minicamp.

The Packers completed the signings by inking second-round receiver Davante Adams and third-round tight end Richard Rodgers, the team announced on Thursday afternoon.

Terms were not announced but Adams' four-year deal is likely worth about $3.93 million, including a $1.18 million signing bonus and almost $1.8 million guaranteed. Rodgers' four-year deal is likely worth $2.73 million, including a signing bonus of about $506,000.

Officially, the Packers are one of 20 teams to have signed their entire draft class, according to OverTheCap.com's Jason Fitzgerald. That list includes St. Louis, which signed all of its picks on Thursday.
