    DE Hardie signed to practice squad
    Green Bay - The Packers signed defensive end Rudolph Hardie to the practice squad.

    The 6-2, 269-pound undrafted rookie from Howard was in training camp with the Detroit Lions before being released on cutdown day. The Packers worked him out late last month.

    www.NFLdraftscout.com had some good things to say about Hardie, who was a top sleeper heading into the draft:

    Compares To: OSI UMENYIORA-New York Giants...Yes, Hardie is a raw prospect who still needs to mature physically, but he is a relentless pass rusher. He might lack explosive timed speed, but his balance, body control and sheer determination has helped him reside in the opposition's backfield. Give him a few years under a patient coaching mentor and you could see the second coming of Umenyiora.

    Hardie will wear No. 69 for the Packers.
