The contract that rookie second-round draft pick Eddie Lacy signed last week with the Green Bay Packers was worth slightly more than the deal that LaMichael James signed last year with San Francisco.

Both running backs were taken at No. 61 overall in the last two drafts.

According to a source with access to NFL Players Association salary information, Lacy’s deal – which he signed last Thursday – was the standard four-year rookie contract. It is worth $3.392 million and included an $847,208 signing bonus.

James’ contact last year was for $3.318 million but contained a slightly larger signing bonus of $853,744 than what Lacy received.

Lacy has base salaries of $405,000 this season, $559,201 in 2014 (with $195,000 of that guaranteed), $713,401 in 2015 and $867,602 in 2016.

The total guaranteed money of $1,042,208 includes his signing bonus and the guaranteed portion of his 2014 base salary.
