Packers sign another punter

Posted: Updated:
GREEN BAY (WKOW) -

 The Packers have added competition at the punter position. The team signed Cody Mandell. The first-year player out of Alabama spent part of the 2014 offseason as a member of the Cowboys but has never played in a NFL game.

Mandell appeared in 52 games for the Crimson Tide. He was a first-team All-SEC selection as a senior and a semifinalist for the Ray Guy Award. He averaged 42.6 yards per punt in his collegiate career.

The Packers are clearly not satisfied with the work of Tim Masthay this past season. The veteran had a net average of just 37 yards per punt this season. That ranked 31st in the NFL.
