    The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports LB Marcus Randall, who started 14 games as a quarterback at Louisiana State from 2002-'04, signed a free-agent contract with the Packers as a linebacker. Randall, 6 feet 1½ inches and 228 pounds, was signed by Tennessee as an undrafted rookie in '05 and converted to safety, where he played three games. The Titans moved him to linebacker in the '06 off-season before cutting him Sept. 2.

    Awesome! If he gets an INT he can accurately lateral to Woodson for a TD!

    taylor's spot is up for grabs. i thought this guy was trying to be a safety? probably just a camp body.

    It's more open then you might think, since we will be keeping Poppinga, Barnett, Hawk, Hodge. White and Taylor are open for changes. If this kid shows great skills on special teams, he'll beat those two guys out for a roster spot.

    White is our special teams captain and seems very content in that role, i reckon he will be kept.

    With all due respect, I don't think anyone is content on being a special teams captain. :)

    He wants to be on the defensive field of play. His agenda under the coachs perception is pass rush specialist. If he can prove to be better than KGB, expect him to be cut and see Hunter in on obvious passing downs.

    A warm body to save the legs of the vets at mini-camp.
