Packers sign fourth-rounder Vince Biegel

Linebacker Vince Biegel’s career with the Packers got off to a bad start when he needed to have foot surgery earlier this month, but the injury didn’t stop him from landing a contract with the team.

The Packers announced that they have signed their fourth-round pick to a four-year deal. He’s the sixth of their 10 picks to agree to a deal.

Biegel didn’t have to make a long trip to join the Packers. He grew up in Wisconsin Rapids and went to school at the University of Wisconsin, which made him a seasoned resident of the Badger State long before he came off the board in Philadelphia.

How much on-field action he’ll see will depend in part on how much time he misses as a result of the surgery. Word at the time of the operation was that he could miss some of training camp and any time on the sideline this summer will leave the rookie with a lot of catching up to do.

  1. I hope this guy has a better career then TJ Watt.

    Go Packers – great draft pick too.

    King, Biegal, and Jones all starters by the end of the year – book it.

    Go Pack GO!

  2. You want King, Biegal and Jones to be starting this year? That bad on defense, eh? I suppose, Jake Ryan is a starter.

  3. At least one scout ranked him higher than his teammate Watt, according to Bob McGinn. Should contribute more than all those sixth and seventh round Mini picks, but then they are really bad on offense.

  4. It’s not necessary to feel compelled to respond to haters with varying witticisms when everyone knows the Packers remain to be the team to beat in the North Division.

    Without a doubt. Everyone knows it.

  5. Considering that the NFCC Game was watched by 46 million people and the Packer secondary, there are changes that need to be made. Either the existing guys step up or the rookies play.

    His name is appropriate because he plays like a dog.

    ………….

    I wouldn’t know and won’t argue that. But I have a feeling you know that type of regret. You probably felt it after you registered your user name.
