On Wednesday, the Green Bay Packers announced that one of their three draft picks who had not yet signed their contracts had done so, as outside linebacker Vince Biegel inked his rookie contract.

However, it appears that there were actually two Packers rookies who signed their first four-year deals yesterday. The other is running back Jamaal Williams, the team’s other fourth-round draft pick. News of his signing comes from his agent, Leigh Steinberg, on Twitter:

All told, Williams’ contract should have a full value of just under $3 million for four years, according to Overthecap.com’s draft pool estimates. That would include a signing bonus of around $560,000.

With Williams under contract now, the Packers have just a single unsigned draft pick on the roster: defensive tackle Montravius Adams, who was the team’s third-round selection in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Biegel’s and Williams’ signings come on the eve of the Packers’ second open OTA practice, which takes place on Thursday at 11:30 AM Central time. Keep it here at APC for updates.
