The Green Bay Packers signed fifth-round pick Corey Linsley on Wednesday, making the Ohio State center the third member of the teamís 2014 draft class to agree to a deal prior to this weekendís rookie orientation camp.

Linsley's four-year deal is worth $2.405 million deal and includes a $185,000 signing bonus as the 21st player taken in the fifth round (161st overall).

Because of an agreement between the NFL and its players union, signing bonuses for draft picks are the same this year as for the player selected in the same slot in the same round last year.

The Packers reached agreements on Tuesday with receivers Jeff Janis and Jared Abbrederis, though Abbrederisí deal didnít come across the transaction wire until Wednesday.

The Packers still need to agree to deals with six rookies: first-round safety Ha Ha Clinton Dix, second-round receiver Davante Adams, third-round defensive lineman Khyri Thornton, fourth-round outside linebacker Carl Bradford and sixth-round cornerback Demetri Goodson.
