The Green Bay Packers have signed free agent safety Jermaine Whitehead to a deal, after Baltimore released him earlier this month.
The 23-year-old Mississippi native was on San Francisco’s practice squad when the Ravens added him to their 53 man roster last December. Whitehead did not play in a game, but the Ravens resigned him in mid April before letting him go.
He played his college ball at Auburn and becomes the sixth safety on the Packers 90-man roster.
Barrington to be honored
Packers linebacker Sam Barrington has been chosen to receive Pop Warner Football’s Humanitarian Award, and he’ll be recognized at a banquet May 28th at Walt Disney World in Orlando.
