The Green Bay Packers gave new outside linebacker Lerentee McCray $125,000 in bonuses as part of the one-year, $800,000 contract he signed earlier this week.

McCray, 25, became a free agent after Denver didn’t tender him a contract as a restricted free agent in March. The 6-foot-2, 246-pound outside linebacker will earn a minimum base salary of $675,000 if he makes the Packers’ final 53-man roster out of training camp and stay there all season, according to a league source with access to the NFLPA salary database.

McCray had 15 tackles and a ½ sack in 11 games for the Broncos. He played 28 snaps on special teams during their Super Bowl victory in February.

The Packers provided no guaranteed money in the one-year, $700,000 deal that fifth-year offensive lineman Don Barclay signed earlier this week. It includes a $25,000 workout bonus for his participation in the offseason program.

Barclay, who played on on a $1.54 million restricted tender last season, has started half of his NFL regular-season games (23 of 46), but struggled in his first year back from undergoing reconstructive knee surgery. If he can bounce back, the 6-foot-4, 305-pound has proven to be a reliable, versatile reserve.

The Packers worked split-salary language into Barclay's contract, meaning he'll earn a prorated portion of $403,000 if placed on injured reserve at any point during the season.

The Packers have $10,657,816 in remaining cap room for the 2016 season after the signings.
