Green Bay Packers Sign Eddie Lacy
Eddie Lacy has agreed to his rookie contract with the Green Bay Packers.Â Â Rob Demovsky of the Green Bay Press-Gazette sent out the news via Twitter todayÂ and reported that it was first announced by ESPN.
Per the new CBA, all rookie contracts are for four years with the exception of first round selections.Â Lacy was a second round pick in this year’s draft.Â Terms of the deal have not been disclosed and the team will likely make an announcement of the deal on Thursday of this week.
This leaves first round pick Datone Jones as the Packers’ only unsigned draftee.Â The team must sign JonesÂ for a minimum of four years, but may opt to add a fifth year toÂ the deal, should those terms be agreeable.â€”â€”â€”â€”â€”â€”
