Packers agree to contract with Jerron McMillian


Count the Packers among the teams that have started signing their draft picks.

The agent for safety Jerron McMillian, a fourth-round pick, told Rob Demovsky of the Green Bay Press-Gazette that his client has agreed to terms on a contract with the Packers. As will all players drafted outside the first round, McMillian will sign a four-year contract to kick off his professional career.

McMillian didn’t get much publicity while playing for Maine, but he started generating more interest when he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.35 seconds at his pro day. Green Bay’s situation at safety is in some flux thanks to the release of Nick Collins and the discussion about moving Charles Woodson off of corner to help fill the void. McMillian should have a chance to prove he’s worth playing time as a rookie and will likely be a contributor on special teams as well.

The Packers expect to have all eight of their draft picks signed by the start of this weekend’s rookie minicamp.

  1. The Pack picked up a safety…and he already is wearing Nick Collins old number (picture).
    Hopefully, he can make 3 pro bowls like Collins did.

  2. Don’t worry about McMillian, I’ve spent lots of time with him and I’ll say he’s as advertised. He will work his tail off and be a great member of Packers and the Green Bay community. The picture is from the pro combine in Indy; he’ll make his own jersey and number a top seller!

  3. Jerron McMillian looks like he’s been in the weight room after practice during his university days. (I sure wouldn’t want to be carrying the ball if there was a chance Jerron would be tackling me. I’d be looking to lateral.)

    Now, with that blinding speed on top of the weight-lifting physique, this draft pick could really help us.

    Go PACK go !!!

  4. Well yeah, that’s nice and all, but isn’t it time for another update from the Minnesota legislature?
