Packers sign 27-year-old lineman to practice squad

Dec. 31, 2013
 

The Green Bay Packers have signed 27-year-old guard Lanier Coleman to their practice squad, filling the spot vacated by cornerback Jumal Rolle upon his activation to the 53-man roster last Friday.

A 2009 graduate of Louisiana-Lafayette, Coleman spent three years out of football before signing with the New York Jets earlier this season following a successful tryout at their rookie mini-camp.

The 6-foot-4, 322-pound defensive tackle was a strength and conditioning coach at the University of California before going to training camp with the Jets, but failing to make their 53-man roster.

Coleman appeared in 28 games at Louisiana-Lafayette, playing guard for his first two seasons before moving to defensive tackle as a junior.

Giorgio Tavecchio, who competed with Mason Crosby for the Packers' kicking job in training camp, signed a futures contract with the Detroit Lions on Tuesday.
