Nall signs tender offer

The Green Bay Packers today announced that they have re-signed restricted free agent Craig Nall.<p>

Terms of Nall's deal were not disclosed, but he reportedly was offered the minimum one-year tender of $656,000 by the Packers.

Offensive lineman Kevin Barry and third-string quarterback J.T. O'Sullivan are the only two restricted free agents remaining on Green Bay's off-season roster.

Nall, who turns 26 on Thursday, is entering his fourth year as a reserve quarterback for Green Bay. He played in five games last year and finished the season as the Packers No. 2 quarterback. He moved into the role in Week 5 when Doug Pederson went on season-ending injured reserve with broken ribs. For the season, Nall completed 23-of-33 passes for 314 yards and four touchdowns, for a passer rating of 139.4.

Nall (6-foot-3, 228-pounds) was originally selected in 2002 by the Packers out of Northwestern (La.) State as a fifth-round draft choice (164th overall). Nall was allocated to NFL Europe in 2003, where he started all 10 games for the Scottish Claymores, finishing as the league leader in passing yards (2,050), touchdown passes (18) and passer-rating (95.9).
