Packers Signing Draft Picks Before Rookie Camp

According to source as of 10:30 a.m. on Friday, the Packers have signed Blake Martinez, Dean Lowry, Trevor Davis and Kyle Murphy.

The Green Bay Packers will open their rookie orientation camp on Friday with at least three members of their seven-man draft class under contract.

According to sources, the Packers have signed linebacker Blake Martinez and defensive lineman Dean Lowry, their fourth-round draft picks, and receiver Trevor Davis, their fifth-round pick. Sixth-round guard Kyle Murphy has signed, too.

The collective bargaining agreement has made rookie contracts pretty much cut-and-dried. What used to get done in mid-July — if teams were lucky — is now getting done in early May.

All rookie contracts are four-year contracts with slotted dollar values, with the lone exception being the first-round pick, which has a fifth-year team option.

The dollar values, via Spotrac:

Round 1, Kenny Clark, $9,361,646 total, $5,008,470 bonus, $1,702,117 Year 1 cap.
Round 2, Jason Spriggs, $5,004,293 total, $1,839,486 bonus, $909,872 Year 1 cap.
