Green Bay Packers Sign Undrafted Rookie Safety Tanner Miller

The Packers also made the signing of fourth round draft choice Carl Bradford official on Friday.

It had been reported for days that the Packers would sign undrafted rookie safety Tanner Miller out of Iowa, but it took until Friday for the deal to become complete.

The Packers announced Miller's signing on Friday, along with fourth round draft choice Carl Bradford, a linebacker out of Arizona State.

There's a chance Miller could have been taking courses at Iowa earlier this week, which potentially delayed his signing behind that of other draft choices. Also, it was reported on Thursday that Bradford had agreed to a deal but wasn't listed on the NFL's transaction wire that day.

As the 121st overall selection in the draft, OvertheCap.com estimates Bradford will receive a four-year deal worth very close to $2.649 million based on the league's draft choice slotting system.

Bradford is projected to receive a signing bonus worth $429,300 as well as cap numbers worth $527,325 in 2014, $617,325 in 2015, $707,325 in 2016 and $797,325 in 2017.

In three years at Arizona State, Bradford made 154 tackles, 43 for a loss, 21.5 sacks and six forced fumbles.

Indications are Bradford will begin by practicing with the outside linebackers in Green Bay, where he'll join a deep group that also includes Clay Matthews, Julius Peppers, Nick Perry, Mike Neal, Andy Mulumba, Nate Palmer and other rookies.

After Miller's signing, the Packers roster stands at 88 out of a potential 90 players. Typically, the Packers sign a handful of tryout players that impress during the team's annual rookie minicamp—taking place this Friday and Saturday.
