Green Bay Packers Rumors: Green Bay passes on former Alabama Blake Sims after tryout, signs offensive lineman Andy Philips, releases DT Luther Robinson

The Green Bay Packers continue find the best players to fill in the 90-man roster, then to 53-man roster for the upcoming 2015 NFL season. By signing UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley, a fifth round pick, the Packers indicate that the quarterback position would no longer be a problem.

In a report, even former Alabama quarterback Blake Sims participated in a tryout with the Packers but he is not added to the Packers’ roster. Though Sims has the college experience, there’s no room for the quarterback position. Sims will try his luck in a tryout with the Redskins.

JSOnline reports that the Packers released defensive tackle Luther Robinson. A second year player in the NFL, Robinson made the 53-man roster after Green Bay defeated Minnesota, when he deflected Christian Ponder’s pass that Julius Peppers returned for a 49 yard touchdown.

Moreover, the Packers signed rookie free agent offensive lineman Andy Phillips. The Packers also signed second round pick cornerback Quinten Rollins on Monday.

As PreFootballTalk per se:

Rollins (5-11, 195) was a collegiate point guard before moving to football in 2014, and a successful transition it was, as he was named the Mid-American Conference’s Defensive Player of the Year after intercepting seven passes. Now, Rollins faces a potentially even more challenging transition — the move from college to the NFL.

By failing to beat the Seahawks in the NFC title game last season, the Packers have to make sure that they have enough weapons for the 2015 NFL season.
