Packers sign tight end

The Green Bay Packers Friday signed non-drafted free agent Steve Fleming.

A 6-foot-6, 262-pound tight end, Fleming spent one week earlier this spring with the New York Giants.

As a senior last fall at the University of Arizona, Fleming caught 23 passes for 332 yards, a 14.4 per-catch average, and two touchdowns. A four-year letterman and two-year starter, he posted 50 career receptions for 584 yards and four touchdowns.

A quarterback and team captain in high school, Fleming led Chaparral High School (Scottsdale, Ariz.) to a state championship. Packers quarterbacks coach Darrell Bevell also is a former Chaparral signal caller.
