The Green Bay Packers have signed LB Erik Walden. The transaction was announced Wednesday by Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson.
Walden, a 6-foot-2, 250-pound third-year player out of Middle Tennessee State, has played in 28 career games. Drafted in the sixth round (167th overall) by the Dallas Cowboys in 2008, he was claimed by Kansas City after being released by Dallas in the final roster cutdown in August 2008. Walden played in nine games for the Chiefs in ’08 before being released in November, and was then claimed by Miami, where he appeared in six games that season. He also played in 11 games for the Dolphins in 2009 and two contests for Miami this season. Walden will wear No. 93.
