GREEN BAY, Wis. — Rookie contract signings began Wednesday for Green Bay Packers draft picks, with fifth-round selection Jared Abbrederis and seventh-rounder Jeff Janis both completing their deals.

The Packers also signed another undrafted free agent, offensive tackle John Fullington. At 6-foot-5 and 300 pounds, Fullington was a starter as a senior at Washington State, beginning at right guard before switching to right tackle. That makes a total of 13 undrafted players signed by Green Bay since the conclusion of the draft.

Green Bay made another roster move, releasing cornerback James Nixon. He appeared in three games last season.
