Safety Marwin Evans tried out for a spot with the Seahawks at Seattle’s rookie minicamp, but was not one of the five players to earn a spot on their roster when the session concluded.
He didn’t have to wait long for a chance on anther roster. He didn’t even have to work out for another team.
The Packers announced Tuesday that they have signed Evans. It’s a homecoming of sorts for Evans, who went to Oak Creek High School outside of Milwaukee before moving on to junior college and Utah State.
He played with Packers third-round pick Kyler Fackrell at Utah State and started 13 games. He had 83 tackles, two sacks and an interception return for a touchdown while generally playing close to the line of scrimmage.
The Packers did not draft a safety this year and have Morgan Burnett returning as their starting strong safety alongside Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.
