GREEN BAY – Drafting first round picks is great, but there’s always a bit of anxiety included when it comes to working out a deal in time for camp. It’s integral that rookies start “on time”, but as we’ve seen in the past, rookie holdouts are a real thing and can last a long time, causing concern and proverbial headaches throughout the franchise and fanbase.

That wasn’t the case with Devonte Wyatt and the Packers, however.

Per NFL Network‘s Ian Rapoport, the Packers signed Wyatt to a four-year, $12.86 million contract. The deal is fully guaranteed and also includes a $6.533 million signing bonus, which is paid out immediately.

Wyatt is the first 2022 first-rounder to sign a contract with his respective team. The Packers have another first-rounder in Quay Walker that is next in line for a deal.

Wyatt will also have a fifth-year option that must be picked by the end of his third season, however, the total amount won’t be unknown until around some time in February-March 2025.

The Packers got to work quick and now, they have one less thing to worry about as the offseason rolls on.
