GREEN BAY -- The Green Bay Packers signed guard Jordan McCray in 2014. Now they're going to give it a try with his identical twin brother, Justin.

This is a 2015 photo of Justin McCray, formerly of the Tennessee Titans.

The Packers signed the 6-foot-3, 317-pound McCray, a street free agent, to their 90-man roster Wednesday.

In May of 2014, the Packers wanted to sign both McCrays as undrafted free agents coming out of the University of Central Florida, but the brothers decided it was best to split up. Jordan signed with the Packers and Justin signed with Tennessee.

Justin wound up spending the entire '14 season on the Titans' practice squad and returned for training camp the following year, but did not make the 53-man roster. Both he and Jordan tried their hand at Arena League football last year.

Jordan did not make the Packers' 53-man roster in '14, but was signed to the practice squad for a month later in the season.

The Packers now have three guards on the roster: Lane Taylor, Lucas Patrick and McCray, plus tackle/guard Don Barclay.
