    Hamilton (6-2, 315) is an undrafted rookie out of Louisiana-Lafayette who spent the entire offseason with the Bills before being released at the end of camp.

    He was a three year starter for the Ragin' Cajuns and was named second-team All-Sun Belt in 2013 and first-team All-Sun Belt in 2014.

    A team can never have enough good players. Hopefully, he turns out to be a good player.

    The Packers had an open spot on the practice squad after Bruce Gaston signed with the Bears last week.

    Sorry to see Gaston go. He looked like he could become a decent pass rushing big man.

    Somebody liked them some L-L tape...Ringo, Alonzo Harris and now Hamilton.

    This would be the Bruce Gaston replacement.

    The Packers currently carry only five full-time D-lineman on the active roster (Raji, D-Jones, Guion, Pennel & Daniels), although Mike Neal could line up there in a pinch, so this signing could end up be significant down the road should we have another injury. Josh Boyd is out for the season, and Hamilton joins Christian Ringo as the only D-linemen on the PS.

    Seems like a lot of guys from L-L on one roster from a relatively small school.

    I have a hard time believing Hamilton will ever get close to seeing the field with the Packers.

    Hard to say. Undrafted free-agent.......we have a lot of those.

    Hamilton doesn't know the Packers system though.

    Certainly not yet anyway.

    As long as the guys we have stay healthy, he'll likely remain on the PS. If a couple of guys go down, anything can happen.

    @RobDemovsky: The Packers worked out four linebackers today: Justin Anderson (Louisiana-Lafayette), Curtis Grant (Ohio State),... https://t.co/upmO8hjmay

    Louisiana-Lafayette may become a farm team for the Packers. The team worked out one of
    Their linebackers this week.
