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.
