Green Bay Packers first round draft pick Kenny Clark is one of five first round draft picks around the NFL that is yet to sign a contract. But Clark said this week that his agent is talking with the Packers and he didn’t think the two sides were very far apart.
The other first round picks without deals are: San Diego end Joey Bosa (No. 3 pick), New York Jets linebacker Darron Lee (No. 20 pick), Houston receiver Will Fuller (No. 21 pick) and San Francisco offensive lineman Joshua Garnett (No. 28 overall).
Clark should get his contract done before players report for training camp on July 25th. The Packers haven’t had a rookie holdout since the rookie salary pool was instituted back in 2011.
While Clark believes the two sides are close, it would appear that Clark’s agent, Jerome Stanley is looking to structure the deal differently than what the Packers have in mind.
