Packers Sign Fourth-Rounder Jerron McMillian
The Green Bay Packers have officially signed fourth-round draft pick Jerron McMillian, their first draft pick to come to terms.
The safety got a four-year deal worth a total of $2.4 million. He also received a signing bonus of $300,584. The numbers break down like this, according to Paul Imig: $390,000 in the first year, $480,000 in the second, $570,000 in the third and $660,000 in the fourth.
If McMillian plays more than 35 percent of the team’s defensive snaps, his fourth-year base salary could jump to $1.2 million.
The Maine product was pick No. 133, which was one of the Packers’ two compensatory selections in the round. Coming from small-school Maine, he’ll probably take some time to get acclimated to the NFL.
We’re not sure if this is good or bad, but McMillian looks kind of like Atari Bigby.
Monty McMahon is one of the founders of Total Packers. He is probably the most famous graduate of UW-Oshkosh next to Jim Gantner.
