Green Bay Packers Sign 2 More Draft Picks

Bradford had 21.5 sacks in three seasons at Arizona State and will move to linebacker after playing defensive end for the Sun Devils.

Goodson played cornerback at Baylor and had four interceptions in three seasons after playing three seasons of college basketball at Gonzaga.

The signings of Bradford and Goodson means the Pack has all five of the players it took on the third day of the draft in the fourth through seventh rounds under contract.

Goodson’s brother, Mike Goodson, is a running back with the New York Jets.

Bradford had 8.5 sacks last season, starting all 14 games for Arizona State, which won the Pac-12’s South Division before losing to Stanford in the conference title game. Goodson had three interceptions last season and led the Big 12 Conference with 13 passes defensed.

At Gonzaga, Goodson started 68 of the Bulldogs’ 69 games in his final two seasons, including starting all 35 games at point guard as a junior in 2010-11, before transferring to Baylor to play football.

      That should get done fairly quickly. With the rookie wage scale coming out of the last collective bargaining agreement, there’s just no incentive for rookies to hold out.
