Packers add more rookie free agents

Continuing to add depth to the training camp roster, the Packers added two more rookie free agents today: Mississippi College WR Jake Allen, C Brennen Carvalho of Portland State, TE Joey Haynos of Maryland, and LB Marcus Riley of Fresno State. There seem to also be conflicting reports as to whether RB Justin Beaver from UW-Whitewater has signed a contract or not. The earlier report (as noted here at and what is still being reported on local news outlets, is that he will work out for the Packers at their rookie orientation camp this coming weekend. That means a contract has not yet been extended, he's been invited to tryout and that's it at this point.

That puts the Packers rookie free agent signings at 10, as far as we know. They have 2 more slots available -- of veteran or rookie signings -- to reach the league maximum training camp roster of 80.
