Packers to Sign Undrafted Safety Ryan McMahon, says Report

Just because today's the Packers' shareholders meeting doesn't mean Ted Thompson is excused from work.

Ryan McMahon is in the middle of that pile somewhere.

Packers officials might have been busy today with the team's annual shareholders meeting, but that didn't stop Ted Thompson from performing his job.

As first reported by Bill Huber of Packer Report, the team is in the process of signing safety Ryan McMahon, an undrafted rookie out of Sacramento State.

McMahon began his collegiate career at USC, but transferred following his sophomore year in pursuit of more playing time. At Sacramento State, he earned an All-Big Sky honorable mention following a senior season in which he led the Hornets in solo tackles (50) and finished second in total tackles (97). At his pro day, McMahon ran a 4.44 40-yard dash, posted a 38-inch vertical leap, and completed 14 reps on the 225 pound bench press.

The Packers first got a look at McMahon during their rookie tryouts in May but declined to sign him at that time. Assuming Bill Huber's report is accurate and McMahon passes his team physical, he'll compete for a roster spot with Sean Richardson, Chaz Powell, and David Fulton. The addition of McMahon leaves the Packers with two open spots on their 90-man roster.
