UPDATED: According to a source who reported to the Green Bay Press Gazette, the only other undrafted rookie to have signed with the Packers is fullback Ryan Roberson of Texas.
If you thought the acquisition of talent came to an end when the final “Mr. Irrelevant” selection of the 2013 NFL Draft was made (Justice Cunningham, a tight end out of South Carolina, BTW), you were sorely mistaken.
This is when the most fun begins – when teams begin making the calls and signing the guys who weren’t drafted: the undrafted free agents.
So far, the Packers have been busy on this front. According to multiple sources this morning, including this nifty list put together by Kevin McCauley over at Acmepackingcompany.com, Green Bay has already either gotten commitments or are rumored to have solicited at least 10 UDFAs (see the list below and go to acmepackingcompany where this fluid list is being updated regularly).
