Packers sign DT Miller to practice squad

The Packers announced multiple roster moves on Tuesday. Green Bay signed defensive tackle Jordan Miller to the practice squad, and released offensive lineman Chris Scott and defensive end Drew Vanderlin from the same unit.

Miller, a 6-foot-1, 309-pound first-year player out of Southern University, spent the first 15 games of the 2011 campaign on Chicago's practice squad. He was signed to the Bears' 53-man roster for the 2011 season finale, though he did not see action. Miller was with the Bears this preseason before being released on Aug. 31. He originally went undrafted out of Southern.

Miller played in 31 games in three seasons at Southern, and finished his collegiate career with 90 tackles, 18 sacks, and 30 tackles for loss. He is set to wear number 91 for Green Bay.
