Packers re-sign Auburndale native Mark Tauscher to two-year deal

Posted:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The agent for longtime Green Bay Packers right tackle Mark Tauscher says the veteran has agreed to terms on a multiyear contract that will bring him back to the team.

Agent Neil Cornrich says the deal will allow Tauscher, who went to the University of Wisconsin, to play his entire football career in his home state. Tauscher was an unrestricted free agent.

Milwaukee's ESPN 540 AM radio first reported Tauscher's return on its Web site Saturday night.

Tauscher began the 2009 season out of football after sustaining a serious knee injury. The Packers brought him back in midseason and he returned to his starting spot, bringing stability to the NFL's worst pass protection unit.
