Packers sign fullback Quinn Johnson

The Green Bay Packers have signed their fifth-round draft choice, LSU fullback Quinn Johnson.

He was in 40 career games with the Tigers and the Packer coaches said they were impressed with his physical play.

GM Ted Thompson only has two draft picks left to sign - first-rounders Clay Matthews and B-J Raji.

At last word, both were expected to sign before training camp begins a week from Saturday.

In another personnel move, the Packers have released tight end Carson Butler.
