The Green Bay Packers added two receivers to their official roster of signed players.
ESPN's Rob Demovsky tweeted this report Thursday:
#Packers will have their last two unsigned draft picks -- Davante Adams and Richard Rodgers -- under contract today.— Rob Demovsky (@RobDemovsky) June 12, 2014
The Packers later confirmed the report.
Both Adams and Rodgers are Packers draft picks from early May.
Adams starred at Fresno State and was seen as a potential steal for the Packers in the second round.
Davante Adams deal: Four-years, max value of $3,933,402 ($1,779,447 guaranteed). Signing bonus: $1,180,656. Actually signed yesterday.— Rob Demovsky (@RobDemovsky) June 12, 2014
Rodgers is a rookie tight end from California who could compete for playing time with Andrew Quarless should the Packers not re-sign injured free agent Jermichael Finley.
Richard Rodgers deal: Four-year, max of $2,761.016 ($506.016 guaranteed - all in signing bonus).— Rob Demovsky (@RobDemovsky) June 12, 2014
