Packers Sign Ina Liaina

The Packers have signed fullback Ina Liaina to a two-year deal, according to agent Angelo Wright of SportsWest Football (via Twitter). Rob Demovsky of adds that it’s a reserve/futures contract (Twitter link).

Liaina, who went undrafted in 2013, was signed in May by the Dolphins, but only lasted a few weeks on the roster before being cut. The San Jose State product, who played predominantly at fullback and on special teams, had 98 rushing yards on 33 attempts during his final college season in 2012.

The Packers reportedly worked out another fullback, Jonathan Amosa, today, so it appears that the team elected to sign Liaina over Amosa or any other free agent options.
