The Packers re-signed linebacker Justin Hollins on Thursday, the team announced.

Green Bay claimed him off waivers from the Rams on Nov. 23.

Hollins, 27, appeared in six games for the Packers, seeing action on 128 defensive snaps and eight on special teams. He had played 50 percent of Los Angeles’ defensive snaps and 11 percent of the special teams snaps in 10 games with the Rams last season.

Hollins reunited with Packers defensive coordinator Joe Barry, who was Hollins’ position coach in 2020 with the Rams.

The Broncos made Hollins a fifth-round selection in 2019, and he spent one year in Denver before two-plus years with the Rams.

In his career, Hollins has totaled 106 tackles, 9.5 sacks and 15 quarterback hits.

  1. Considering how strapped the Packers are right now with cap-space, they’ve made some solid, economical signings. Hollins, Rudy Ford, Keisean Nixon, Tyler Davis, long-snapper Matt Orzech & CB Corey Ballentine will all contribute significantly. Packers still need to address TE, WR & another Edge.

  2. With a few more big signings this team could scratch and claw its way out of last place next season!

  3. It’s a good signing. Depth move.
    Hollins showed decent production on a limited amount of snaps.
    LBs are a need as Gary will probably be slowed in the early part of the season, but the real help at Edge will come from the draft in April.
