Davante Adams and Richard Rodgers Sign Rookie Contracts with Packers

With these most-recent signings, the Packers have signed every member of their rookie class.

Wide receiver Davante Adams and tight end Richard Rodgers signed their rookie contracts with the Green Bay Packers, according to Thursday's NFL transaction wire.

The second and third round selections are the final two players of the Packers' draft class to finalize their deals.

According to the rookie salary slotting system as projected by OvertheCap.com, Adams is projected to receive a four-year deal worth $3.933 million.

Adams will receive a signing bonus worth $1.181 million along with base salaries worth $715,164 his rookie season in 2014, $893,955 in 2015, $1.073 million in 2016 and $1.252 million in 2017.

As the 98th overall selection, Rodgers will receive a four-year deal worth $2.726 million, including a signing bonus of $506,016.

Rodgers' base salaries will be $546,504 in 2014, $636,504 in 2015, $726,504 in 2016 and $816,504 the final year of his rookie deal.

The announcement of the Adams and Rodgers signings come on the eve of the final day of Organized Team Activites (OTAs) in Green Bay.

Following Friday's closed-door practice session, the Packers rookies will have one final week of practice during next week's mandatory minicamp before training camp starts in late July.

Adams and Rodgers will both be looking to become part of the Packers' passing offense in 2014, but just how big of a role they play is yet to be determined.
