Packers coach and general manager Mike Sherman said today that Davenport's arrest and pending investigation has slowed contract talks.
"It has a little bit to do with the contract, and also conversation that he and I had previous to this," said Sherman. "I knew about this three weeks ago. He and I had conversations about it. There's a little bit of an overlap between the two.
The Packers may be seeking to withdraw all or part of a signing bonus for the rookie. A signing bonus is guaranteed money usually paid upfront by the team to the player. Davenport, the 135th overall pick in the draft, would likely command a signing bonus between $200,000 and $225,000.
"He's a young man who made a bad decision and has to live with it," said Sherman. "We drafted him. At this point, we're working through that."
Terms of Kampman's deal were not disclosed. He likely received a three-year deal, including a signing bonus of around $125,000. He was selected 156th overall by the Packers in the draft.
