Generally speaking, the best way to estimate an NFL team's belief in an undrafted free agent is by looking at the signing bonus allotted to him. While the Packers choose not to announce this information, sources with access to the NFLPA's salary information leaked them to Pete Dougherty of the Green Bay Press-Gazette.
The highest signing bonuses went to inside linebackers Jake Doughty (Utah State) and Joe Thomas (South Carolina State), outside linebackers Adrian Hubbard (Alabama) and Jayrone Elliott (Toledo), and offensive lineman John Fullington (Washington State). Each received $5,000 guaranteed to sign.
Outside of the signing bonus, all undrafted free agent contracts include identical terms. Each lasts for three seasons paid at the NFL minimum. Those numbers are $420,000 for 2014, $510,000 the season after, and $600,000 in the final year of the deal.
Here are the signing bonuses for all the undrafted rookies in order of signing bonus.
