Green Bay Packers bring in trio of QBs for tryouts

According to a report, the Green Bay Packers brought in three quarterbacks off the waiver wire for tryouts on Sunday.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Sunday that quarterbacks Pat Devin, Jon Jennings and Jeff Mathews tried out with the team.

Devlin was released by the Miami Dolphins on Aug. 19. He spent three seasons with Miami but never played in a regular-season game.

Jennings, an undrafted free agent from Saginaw Valley State, signed with the Kansas City Chiefs but did not attempt a pass in the preseason.

Mathews, undrafted from Cornell, was released on the first cut by the Atlanta Falcons after going 1-for-3 for eight yards in the preseason.

The Packers also worked out three offensive linemen and a defensive back.

Tackle Michael Bamiro was released by Philadelphia on Aug. 23 after spending last season on the Eagles’ practice squad. He signed in 2013 as an undrafted free agent from Stony Brook.

Tackle Manase Foketi was an undrafted free agent out of West Texas A&M who signed with the Denver Broncos in 2013, he was cut out of training camp and signed with the New Orleans Saints, who waived him last week.

Guard Adam Gettis was a fifth-round pick by the Washington Redskins in 2012 out of Iowa and played in 13 games for the Redskins last season after spending the entire 2012 season with Washington but not playing. He was cut Aug. 24.

The Packers also looked at cornerback Robert Steeples, who was an undrafted free agent out of Memphis who signed with the St. Louis Rams in 2013. He was cut in training camp and joined the Minnesota Vikings practice squad. He wound up playing in two games after joining their active roster last season. Minnesota cut Steeples on Monday.
