The second of the Green Bay Packers' two fourth-round draft choices, Maine safety Jerron McMillian, has officially signed his contract, according to Paul Imig of Fox Sports Wisconsin.
According to Imig:
McMillian's agent, Abu Toppin, discussed the full terms of the contract on Thursday. McMillian, a fourth-round pick from Maine, received a $300,584 signing bonus and has a first-year salary base of $390,000.
His four-year contract is worth a total of $2.4 million. McMillian's second-year base salary is $480,000, with a third year at $570,000 and a fourth year at $660,000.
If McMillian plays more than 35 percent of the defensive snaps for Green Bay, his fourth-year salary could bump up significantly, approximately twice as much, to $1.2 million.
There was and is little room for negotiation, not only McMillian but all of the of the Packers' draft choices due to the NFL's rookie salary scale. The figures––for all intents and purposes––are pretty much predetermined.
