Packers sign rookie center Kyle Steuck to bolster offensive line

Green Bay added an interior lineman to help out with the injury issues at center.

The Green Bay Packers are a bit thin on the offensive line right now. With Corey Linsley still on the PUP list and JC Tretter playing only one series on Friday against the Cleveland Browns, the Packers had to play Don Barclay at center for almost the entire game.

The team also has guard Matt Rotheram as a potential option at center, but he only starting taking reps over the football in spring practices. Add that to rookie center Jacob Flores’ injury and you can see that there are not many options in the middle of the line right now.

Those reasons are likely why the Packers are making a move to bring aboard a new player, who happens to be a Green Bay native: Northen Michigan’s Kyle Steuck.

Steuck, who went to West De Pere high school, performed a local workout for the Packers before the 2016 NFL Draft and attended rookie minicamp in Green Bay on a tryout basis.

Congratulations to Kyle on signing with his hometown team!
