The Green Bay Packers have agreed to terms on a four-year rookie contract with linebacker Sam Barrington, a seventh-round pick, according to a league source.

The Packers drafted the 6-1, 235-pound linebacker out of the University of South Florida with their 11th and final selection (232nd overall) in the NFL Draft.

The deal is expected to come in at around $2.2 million over four years with a signing bonus likely remaining the same as the $49,432 given to Seattle defensive end Greg Scruggs, the 232nd player selected in last year’s draft.

A three-year starter at USF, Barrington finished his senior season with 80 tackles (6˝ for loss), 3˝ sacks and two forced fumbles after tallying 72 tackles (6˝ for loss) and 2˝ sacks the year before.

He joins a crowded position group with A.J. Hawk, Brad Jones, Desmond Bishop, Terrell Manning, Robert Francois and Jamari Lattimore, but has experience and versatility of playing outside, as well.

According to Press-Gazette reporter Pete Dougherty, the Packers also have reached an agreement with Illinois State linebacker Nate Palmer, a sixth-round pick.
