Packers logoLane Taylor started two games and played in a total of six last season, but the Green Bay Packers still felt he showed enough to sign him to a two-year contract.

Taylor signed a two-year deal for a reported $4.15-million, including a $600,000 signing bonus, plus an incentive package that could add another $1-million.

Taylor started at right guard in Week 10 against Detroit, playing for starting guard T.J. Lang, who was inactive because of a shoulder injury.  Taylor started the regular-season finale against the Minnesota Vikings at left guard for Josh Sitton, who moved over to left tackle.

Taylor was an undrafted free agent out of Oklahoma State.  He gives the Packers some insurance in case they lost either Lang or Sitton, whose contracts both expire after the upcoming season.

Taylor becomes the fourth player general manager Ted Thompson re-signed before the start of free agency, joining Mike Daniels, Letroy Guion and kicker Mason Crosby.
