Good news, everyone!

Before today, only seven of the Green Bay Packers' nine draft picks were officially under contract. A few, like wide receiver Jared Abbrederis, signed almost immediately, while first-round pick Ha Ha Clinton-Dix took a little longer to sign but ultimately had his deal done two weeks ago, during week one of Organized Team Activities.

However, as of this afternoon, the entire class should be inked up on their rookie deals, according to ESPN's Rob Demovsky:

Adams, the second-round wide receiver from Fresno State, and Rodgers who was taken as a tight end in round three out of California, were practicing under injury waivers during the first three weeks of OTAs. Each players' deal will cover his first four years in the league. According to Overthecap.com, Adams' contract as the 53rd pick is estimated at just over $3.9 million (including a $1.18 million signing bonus), while Rodgers will earn about $2.7 million (and around $500,000 in signing bonus money) as the 98th overall selection.

UPDATE: Demovsky confirmed the terms of both contracts moments ago, and they are almost identical to the estimates above. Adams Rodgers

UPDATE: Both signings were made official on Thursday, as they appeared on the NFL's official transaction list.

These two signings, combined with the addition of linebacker Shaun Lewis on Tuesday, will officially put the Packers' roster at the maximum 90 players.
