Packers Rookie LBs Ready to Roll


GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers have two more undrafted rookie free agents poised to make the roster.

Vic So'oto and Jamari Lattimore each had sacks in the Packers' 24-21 victory over Indianapolis last Friday and will get a long look in Thursday night's preseason finale against Kansas City.

So'oto (Brigham Young) and Lattimore (Middle Tennessee State) fit the Packers' pattern of unearthing undrafted talent and for finding promising outside linebackers in less prominent places.

With Frank Zombo sidelined with an injury, Erik Walden is the projected starter at one outside linebacker spot. But the Packers may find room on the roster for either So'oto or Lattimore - or both.
