GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Second-round draft pick Jason Spriggs has signed his rookie contract with the Green Bay Packers.

General manager Ted Thompson announced the signing of the offensive tackle from Indiana on Monday as part of a series of moves.

According to Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post, Spriggs deal was worth $5 million, including $2.966 million guaranteed with a $1.839 million signing bonus.

Spriggs, the Concord High School graduate and IU senior, was the No. 48 overall selection by the Packers in the second round of the NFL Draft. He started 47 of 48 games at left tackle for the Hoosiers and was considered among the top offensive line prospects coming out of the 2016 draft class.

Spriggs reported to Green Bay’s rookie camp on Thursday.

Most notably, defensive tackle Josh Boyd was one of five players released by Green Bay. Boyd, who was taken in the fifth round by the Packers in the 2013 draft, played in 26 games with four starts over three seasons in Green Bay.

The team on Monday also signed Casey Pierce, a 6-foot-3 tight end. He was with Detroit last year as an undrafted free agent and spent the season on the Lions’ practice squad.
