GREEN BAY, Wis. — Colt Lyerla has found a home in the NFL, officially signing Monday with the Green Bay Packers.

Lyerla, whose off-the-field issues dropped his draft stock all the way from potentially being a mid-round pick to not even getting a contract offer as a non-drafted free agent, impressed the Packers when he was in as a tryout player during rookie orientation.

Lyerla will now join Green Bay’s tight ends in training camp.

The Packers also signed safety Charles Clay, defensive end Luther Robinson and their third-round pick defensive lineman Khyri Thornton.

Green Bay released tight end Raymond Webber.
