The Green Bay Packers have signed second round defensive lineman Jerel Worthy to a four-year contract, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.
Financial terms were not disclosed, but as the 51st overall pick in the draft, Worthy is expected to sign a contract worth around $3.9 million with a signing bonus of around $1.3 million.
A three-year starter at Michigan State, the 6-foot-2, 308-pound Worthy recorded 107 tackles, 27.5 tackles for a loss, 12 sacks with six passes defensed and six forced fumbles. Worthy also blocked two kicks.
Worthy will compete for a starting right defensive end job and could be a three-down player to start his NFL career.
