For the second time this week the Green Bay Packers have re-signed a player to which they hadn’t made a qualifying offer.

Linebacker Jordan Tripp signed with the Packers on Wednesday. Tripp was scheduled to be a restricted free agent this offseason but after Green Bay didn’t tender him an offer, the linebacker became an unrestricted free agent. But like Jayrone Elliott earlier in the week, Tripp still decided to re-up with the Packers.

Tripp joined Green Bay in mid-December after being waived off injured reserve by Seattle and quickly saw time on special teams in the final two games of the season. He had one tackle with Green Bay and one with the Seahawks, for whom he played seven games.

Tripp has also played with Jacksonville (2015) and Miami (2014).
