On Tuesday, the Packers announced that they have come to terms with first-round draft pick Damarious Randall, who was at that time the only draftee who had not yet signed his rookie deal. As the CBA dictates for all first-round picks, Randall's deal will last for four years, and the Packers can choose to exercise a team option for a fifth year. They must decide on that option during the 2018 offseason, which will precede Randall's fourth year.

According to Over the Cap, Randall's draft slot (first round, #30 overall) should carry a total contract value of about $7.9 million, with a signing bonus of just over $4 million. However, the team did not release the terms of the deal.

With Randall's deal estimated to carry a salary cap charge of approximately $1.44 million in 2015, the Packers are currently projected to have about $15.3 million in cap room this season. We at Acme Packing Company still expect some of that cap room to be put towards a contract extension for either defensive end Mike Daniels or cornerback Casey Hayward.
