Green Bay Packers score a Mulligan in free agency

Strike up the band, holler it from the rooftops, tell your mom, your dad, your sister … the Green Bay Packers have signed a free agent – former St. Louis Ram Matthew Mulligan.

Considered a tight end/wide receiver, Mulligan played three years with the New York Jets before signing with the Rams this year. He’s a former teammate with Packers safety Jerron McMillian, who is also an alum of the University of Maine. According to published reports, Mulligan became the first player from the University of Maine to score a touchdown in the NFL.

Mulligan, it’s reported, chose the Packers over the San Francisco 49ers because Green Bay offered more guaranteed money.

In four years with New York and St. Louis, Mulligan has played in 50 games, starting 20 of them. He had six catches for 60 yards with the Jets and eight catches for 84 yards last year with the Rams. The 6-4, 258-pounder was an undrafted free agent signed back in 2009 by the Jets. He started nine games last season with the Rams.
