Packers sign TE Webber


The Green Bay Packers have signed TE Raymond Webber. The transaction was announced recently by Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson.

The signing is needed to put some depth at the position with Jermichael Finley’s health a concern for the future. Finley, along with fellow tight end Andrew Quarless, is also a free agent. Quarless was a reliable target down the stretch for the Packers. He finished the season with 32 catches for 312 yards and two touchdowns.

Webber is a 6-foot-2, 237-pound second-year player out of Arkansas Pine-Bluff. He initially entered the NFL as a non-drafted free agent with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in July 2011. Webber spent his first season with the club on injured reserve. He also spent time with the New York Jets during the 2012 preseason and participated in training camp with the Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League in 2013.

Webber four-year letterman at wide receiver for the Golden Lions, he posted 180 catches for 2,376 yards and 16 TDs during his collegiate career.
