Field Level Media
The Green Bay Packers had two first round picks in last week's NFL Draft and on Friday revealed that both have agreed to their rookie contracts.
Defensive end Rashan Gary, taken 12th overall, and safety Darnell Savage, taken 21st, are also the first two players taken in the first round to sign.
Savage was the first to sign, with his agents tweeting the news on Thursday. Both players received the customary four-year deals allotted first-round picks, with a fifth-year team option that must be exercised before the start of the players' fourth seasons.
According to Spotrac.com, Savage's contract is worth $12.48 million over four years, while Gary is projected to receive $15.83 million over the same span.
The Packers announced the moves, along with the signing of 11 rookie free agents, as rookie orientation was set to begin.
Of Green Bay's eight draft picks, only guard Elgton Jenkins (second round) and tight end Jace Sternberger (third round) remain unsigned.
