The Packers, who had an open roster spot, have added a player who tried out for them at their May rookie minicamp, signing linebacker Shaun Lewis, the club announced Tuesday.
An Oklahoma State product, the 5-foot-11, 226-pound Lewis recorded 73 tackles (eight for loss) as a senior in 2013. He earned second-team All-Big 12 honors from The Associated Press in 2012 and 2013. Lewis likely projects inside in the Packers’ 3-4 scheme and could be asked to chip in on special teams.
With Lewis’ addition, 30 percent of the Packers’ roster spots belong to rookies (27-of-90), with two-thirds of the rookies added after the draft in free agency.
