GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Looking for another potential solution to their recent punting problems, the Green Bay Packers have signed former Australian rules football player Chris Bryan.
A 6-foot-5, 210-pound rookie, Bryan played in the Australian Football League from 2005-08. He will wear No. 9 for Green Bay.
The Packers have been struggling to find a consistent punter for several seasons. They didn't make a qualifying offer to last year's punter, Jeremy Kapinos, and signed former University of Kentucky punter Tim Masthay to a reserve/future contract in January.
