The Green Bay Packers will have just over 7.9 million dollars in their rookie salary pool for the 2020 Draft Class ESPN.com's Rob Demovsky reported on Wednesday.
Using date from the National Football League Players' Association, the report says the Packers total compensation maximum for the 4 and 5 year contract lengths will be just over 43.6 million.
Those numbers are down from 2019 when Green Bay had 9.3 million in the rookie pool and over 51 million in max compensation. That's because the Packers had the 12th overall choice in the draft (Rashan Gary) and a second first round pick (Darnell Savage).
This year, Green Bay selected Utah State quarterback Jordan Love with the 26th overall pick in the opening round along with 8 other picks through the rest of the draft. Love's contract will likely drain most of the rookie pool.
Rookie deals have been slow to come by since the draft in April as only two of the league's 32 first round picks have contracts worked out. With no on-field work coming in the forseable future, there's no rush.
