Packers sign two more draft picks

5/16/2014

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Only the Green Bay Packers' first-four draft picks remain unsigned.

Considering the speed at which vice president of player finance Russ Ball is getting the team's rookie deals done, that, too, should change soon.

Two more draft picks -- fourth-round outside linebacker Carl Bradford and sixth-round cornerback Demetri Goodson -- signed their rookie deals on Friday, when the team opened its rookie orientation camp. That means five of the nine draft picks are under contract.

The unsigned players also participated in the rookie camp, so not having a deal done by Friday was not a big deal.

Here is an update on the draft class’ signings:

  • First round: S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, unsigned.

  • Second round: WR Davante Adams, unsigned.

  • Third round: DT Khyri Thornton, unsigned; TE Richard Rodgers, unsigned.

  • Fourth round: OLB Carl Bradford signed a four-year, $2,649,300 contract (including a $429,300 signing bonus) on May 16.

  • Fifth round: C Corey Linsley, signed a four-year, $2,405,000 contract ($185,000 signing bonus) on May 15; WR Jared Abbrederis, signed a four-year, $2,364,560 contract ($144,560 signing bonus) on May 14.

  • Sixth round: CB Demetri Goodson, signed a four-year, $2,323,152 ($103,152 signing bonus) on May 16.

  • Seventh round: WR Jeff Janis, signed a four-year, $2,271,392 contract ($51,392 signing bonus) on May 14.
