Packers Sign Charles Clay After Rookie Camp Tryout

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE

The first signing from rookie camp has been reported.

It's lunchtime on Monday after the Green Bay Packers' 2014 rookie camp, and the first signing from tryout players at that camp has been reported. The always-on-the-ball Tom Silverstein is reporting that the first signee is a defensive back:

Clay, who played free safety for the Rainbow Warriors, participated in Hawaii's Pro Day, where he measured in at 5' 10-1/2" and 202 pounds, while running a 4.44-second forty-yard dash and putting up a 37-1/2" vertical jump. NFL Draft Scout also reports that at one of the NFL's Super Regional Scouting Combines, Clay had excellent times in the 20-yard shuttle drill (4.15 seconds) and 3-cone drill (6.88 seconds).

After transferring from Southern Methodist University, Clay started seven games for Hawaii, but played in all 37 games over his final three seasons. He did not record an interception, but had one sack, four forced fumbles, three fumble recoveries, and eight pass breakups.

UPDATE: Clay's agent confirmed the signing on Twitter.

UPDATE: The Packers now have a single roster spot open after the Clay signing.

There is no word yet as to whether the Packers have extended a contract offer to tight end Colt Lyerla. We'll keep an ear out for any information as to his possible signing or any other contracts for tryout players as the day goes along.
