Roster moves

The Green Bay Packers have re-signed cornerback Gana Joseph as a free agent, GM/Head Coach Mike Sherman announced Tuesday. To make room for Joseph, 6-0 and 212 pounds, the Packers placed former CFL safety George White on waivers.<p>

White, along with Erwin Swiney, was involved in the defensive miscue Saturday night in which a Cardinal receiver made a rolling catch but was untouched; he got up and ran for a 74-yard TD.

Joseph originally was signed to a two-year contract by New Orleans as an undrafted free agent on April 23, 1999. His collegiate resume includes the University of Oklahoma record for career tackles by a defensive back.

He subsequently was released following the Saints' second preseason game in 1999, and was out of football in 2000. The 25-year-old Nassau, Okla., native signed on with the Packers February 12, 2001. He later was allocated by Green Bay to the Amsterdam Admirals for the 2001 NFL Europe League season but did not play for the Admirals after being placed on injured reserve for a shoulder injury. He also was out of football for the 2001 NFL season.

Joseph, who has been assigned jersey number 38, joined the Packers on the practice field Tuesday afternoon.
