The Packers have re-signed safety Chris Banjo, an exclusive rights free agent, the club said Tuesday.

A second-year pro from SMU, the 24-year-old Banjo notched 19 tackles and defended two passes in 16 regular season games (one start).

The club also confirmed the signing of second-year running back Michael Hill, news of which surfaced last week. The 24-year-old Hill played in two regular season games for Green Bay early last season, then was waived and signed to the practice squad. The Buccaneers signed Hill from the Packers’ practice squad in November, and the Missouri Western product played six games for Tampa Bay, rushing for 23 yards on nine carries.

    Chris Banjo? Never even heard of him. But good luck with that.

    Nice Special Teamer – he might be a decent backup, he can’t be worse than MD and Jerron.

    The first new starter in McCarthy’s new and revitalized defenseā€¦ The UDFA season cannot come quick enough to round out the roster..

    He’s the second best safety on our roster….

    Why waste even the bare minimum on any holdover safety? Special teams players can be be found elsewhere. Between the safety position and the D Line, there isn’t a single keeper among our free agent group. The useless Burnett is already costing a small fortune as a never was. MD Jennings always looks lost. Time for legit players to fill the position.

    These two guys showed enough last year to make the “90” man roster…nothing more than that. Jeezz!
