John Dorsey Announces Two Packers’ Signings
May 12, 1987 – John Dorsey, in Green Bay for off-season workouts, reveals that he and teammate Keith Uecker have signed their contracts to play for the Packers in the upcoming season. The linebacker, who started nine games in 1986, but finished the year as a reserve, says that he and Uecker, an offensive lineman, are the only two free agents from the 1986 club to have signed contracts. Dorsey’s chat with the media comes one day after Tom Braatz, the Packers’ executive vice president of football operations, says the team will not announce the signings of veteran free agents as it had done in the past. “It doesn’t help in negotiations,” he explains.
