The Packers re-signed safety Chris Banjo to a one-year contract, his agent confirmed.

Banjo was an exclusive rights free agent, which means he could sign only with the Packers. The deal presumably is for the NFL minimum of $495,000.

Banjo made the Packers roster last year after not signing a contract with an NFL in 2012, his first year out of college. He finished last season with the second-most tackles on special teams (10), behind Davon House (12).

“Chris’ goal is to lead the team in special teams tackles and be one of the best special teams players in the NFL,” said John Biggins, Banjo’s agent, “and show he can play in the defensive backfield, whether that’s at the nickel or dime or wherever he’s needed."
