Former Virginia Union RB signs with Green Bay Packers (230 hits)

It took longer than he probably would have liked, but Will Stanback now has an NFL home.

The former Virginia Union running back has signed as an undrafted free agent with the Green Bay Packers following a rookie camp tryout, according to his Twitter account.

Stanback played just one season at VUU after starting his career at UCF, but it was a productive one. He led the CIAA in rushing with just under 1,300 yards, scoring 15 touchdowns and averaging 6.3 yards per carry. He rushed for better than 100 yards in eight of those games, and had 94 yards on the ground in one of the others.

His signing makes two for VUU, as defensive back Rodeshawn Joseph signed a minicamp deal with the Denver Bronocos.
