Two more draft picks sign contracts with Packers

After signing rookie wide receivers Jared Abbrederis and Jeff Janis on Wednesday, the Green Bay Packers signed two more of their draft picks yesterday.

The Packers reported the signing of fifth-round center Corey Linsley out of Ohio State on Thursday and the Green Bay Press Gazette is reporting that fourth round outside linebacker Carl Bradford signed  a deal late in the day as well.

That means four of the nine Green Bay draft choices are now under contract, but more deals are expected by the time the Packers put their rookies through the first of two rookie orientation workouts.

All unsigned draft picks sign waivers that allow them to take part in the team’s rookie minicamp practices today and tomorrow as well as any offseason practices that follow.
