Packers Add Another Linebacker: Shaun Lewis

The Packers had an open spot on the roster, so they signed an undrafted rookie from Oklahoma State. The roster is now at the maximum of 90.
His addition brings the total number of linebackers to 16 (including Peppers and Neal) so they didn't really need another one. He was productive in college, but I can see why the NFL hasn't shown much interest in him. His 4.90 40 time is unimpressive (compared to a bigger player like rookie Carl Bradford who ran a 4.76 40 time at the combine) and there aren't many sub 6-0 linebackers playing in the NFL.

They obviously saw something in him at the rookie tryout, but he's a long shot at making either the 53-man roster or the practice squad.
