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.
Round 3, Kyler Fackrell, $3,216,074 total, $694,047 bonus, $623,512 Year 1 cap.

Round 4, Dean Lowry, $2,723,393 total, $383,393 bonus, $545,848 Year 1 cap.
Round 5, Trevor Davis, $2,567,176 total, $227,176 bonus, $506,794 Year 1 cap.
