The Green Bay Packers signed defensive tackle Jordan Miller to the active roster from the practice squad and released linebacker Vic So’oto. The transactions were announced Tuesday by Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations.
Miller, a 6-foot-1, 309-pound first-year player out of Southern University, was signed to Green Bay’s practice squad on Oct. 23. He spent the first 15 games of the 2011 season on Chicago’s practice squad before being signed to the Bears’ active roster for the season finale (inactive). Miller was with the Bears during the 2012 preseason until he was released on Aug. 31, 2012. He originally entered the league with Chicago as a non-drafted free agent on July 27, 2011. Miller will wear No. 91 for the Packers.
So’oto (So-OH-toe) appeared in one game for the Packers this season.
