Roster move: Linebacker placed on waivers

The Packers have placed linebacker Armegis Spearman on waivers, the team announced today.<p>

Spearman (6-1, 250-pounds) was signed as a free agent on April 14. He was expected to contend for a backup spot at linebacker during training camp but was not in good condition after spending most of the 2003 season out of football.

Spearman signed a restricted free-agent offer sheet with the Packers on March 13, 2003, but Cincinnati matched the offer to keep Spearman four days later.

The Bengals waived Spearman, Aug. 31, in their final roster reduction before the regular season. He signed with Houston Sept. 3 and played in the Texans' first 2003 game before he was waived on Sept. 9.

Spearman spent the balance of 2003 out of football. On Jan. 7, he signed a reserve/future contract with Washington, but the Redskins waived him April 1.
