Except for the re-signing of K Mason Crosby to a five-year contract, and the 15 undrafted free agents signed, the Green Bay Packers have only been making news this week when they announce a player won't be returning next season. But it isn't all bad news as they appear to be on schedule to sign all their draft picks. From the Press-Gazette:
The Packers and the agent for first-round draft pick Derek Sherrod have agreed on the numbers, but they’re still haggling over how many years of the deal the Packers are willing to guarantee, a source said.
Rob Demovsky has also reported that Randall Cobb has signed, and only Alex Green, Davon House, Lawrence Guy, and Sherrod remain unsigned from this draft class.
He also points out an interesting new development: all first round draft picks now have guaranteed contracts. The total contract value is a lot lower than it was in past years, but making it fully guaranteed helps, at least in part, make up for it.
Reminder: training camp starts tomorrow, July 30th.
