GREEN BAY – Rookie defensive tackle Brian Price cleared waivers and was re-signed to the Green Bay Packers' practice squad Monday, a league source told USA TODAY NETWORK-Wisconsin and PackersNews..
The Packers have not yet announced Price's signing, which did not appear on the NFL's transaction wire Monday. The Packers already have a full, 10-member practice squad, so they will have to release a player.
Price, undrafted out of Texas-San Antonio, was promoted to the active roster last month before the Packers' game against the Detroit Lions to replace the injured Letroy Guion. He played 10 snaps against the Lions, but did not play the Packers' next game against the New York Giants.
The Packers see Price in their long-term plans and would like him to develop in their practice squad. Price was released Saturday to make room for defensive lineman Mike Pennel, who was added to the active roster after his four-game suspension for violating in the NFL’s substance-abuse policy ended.
