Why Packers signed TE Lyerla 

May, 20, 2014
Since the Green Bay Packers still don't know whether Jermichael Finley will be medically cleared to play this season or whether he will re-sign with the team, they still are in the market for a pass-catching tight end. With that in mind, they signed undrafted free agent Colt Lyerla on Monday. Lyerla has had myriad off-field issues, including leaving Oregon early and being arrested for possession of cocaine, which played a large role in him not being drafted.
