Bulaga is getting paid

The Green Bay Packers will open training camp with all of their players under contract, after first-round draft choice Bryan Bulaga signed a five-year deal this morning.

The deal is worth $14.75 million with $8.76 million guaranteed.

Bulaga was the final player without a contract, after safety Atari Bigby signed his restricted free agent tender on Tuesday. It is the first time the Packers chief negotiator, Russ Ball, has gotten everyone under contract before camp opens.

Bulaga, a tackle from Iowa, will open camp as the backup to left tackle Chad Clifton.

The Packers currently have 82 players. They’ll need make two moves to get down to the 80-man roster limit after signing Bulaga and Bigby.

Those moves are expected to come in the form of putting two players on the physically unable to perform list, most likely defensive backs Al Harris and Will Blackmon, who are returning from knee injuries.
