The Green Bay Packers still haven't made a big splash in free agency, but they have added another free agent from another team. According to USA Today's Tom Pelissero, the team has added defensive end Ray Drew.

A 6-foot-5, 300-pound pass rusher out of Georgia, Drew most likely projects as an interior defensive linemen in the Packers' 3-4 base defense. The former undrafted free agent has yet to play a down in the NFL, but has spent with the Miami Dolphins and Cleveland Browns last season. Drew joins a group of defensive linemen that includes Mike Daniels, Letroy Guion, Mike Pennel, Datone Jones, Josh Boyd, Christian Ringo and B.J. McBryde.

Drew had an up-and-down college career. He registered a 1/2 sack between his freshman and sophomore seasons. He then notched six his junior year before seeing his sack production regress to just one as a senior. He left Georgia with 13 total tackles for loss and 113 total tackles.
