Green Bay Packers: Davate Adams

GREEN BAY, Wis. – Third-round draft pick Khyri Thornton was the latest Green Bay Packers' rookie to sign his contract, meaning all but three of the team's nine draft picks are under contract.

*Wore multiple numbers with the Packers

Note: Based on a picture Janis took of his locker and posted on his Instagram account, it appears the Packers have issued the No. 80. It likely has been given to one of the undrafted rookies, although those players have not yet been added to the official roster.

That number has not been worn since Donald Driver, the team’s career receiving leader, retired following the 2012 season. While it has been suggested that number be retired to honor Driver, it should be noted it was also worn by Pro Football Hall of Fame member James Lofton with the Packers from 1978-86.
