ESPN NFL reporter, Field Yates, reports the Green Bay Packers have signed rookie cornerback, Kevin King.

King, who was the first selection made by the Packers at 33rd overall in the 2017 NFL Draft.

While the details of the contract have not yet been made public, under the new CBA, it is not hard to take an educated guess.

Spotrac was the first to claim the contract will have a signing bonus of $3,289,734. While the total value will be at $7,080,884.

The former Washington corner now becomes the sixth rookie to sign with the Packers so far. To go along with wide receiver DeAngelo Yancey, running back Aaron Jones, offensive guard Kofi Amichia, running back Devante Mays, and wide receiver Malachi Dupre.

King’s story is no secret, he is tall. At 6’3″ he will give Green Bay the length they so desperately need in the secondary.

At the NFL combine, he ran a 4.43 in the 40-yard-dash. Showing good speed for a corner at that height.

With this being such a glaring need in the secondary, King will have the opportunity to step right in and contribute.

Green Bay still as four draft picks unsigned: safety Josh Jones, defensive end Montravius Adams, running back Jamaal Williams, and linebacker Vince Biegel.
