He earned honorable mention All-Conference USA recognition at SMU as a senior in 2011 after recording 82 tackles (50 solo), two passes defensed and two fumble recoveries. As a junior in 2010, Banjo posted 92 tackles (60 solo), including 6½ tackles for loss, two interceptions and eight passes defensed on his way to being named second-team All-Conference USA. He will wear No. 32 for the Packers.

Hines (first name is pronounced oh-MAR-ee-us), a 6-foot, 215-pound rookie out of the University of Florida, signed with Baltimore as a non-drafted free agent in May 2013 before being waived by the club on July 22. He appeared in 51 games with nine starts during his career at Florida and caught 64 passes for 801 yards (12.5 avg.) and four TDs.
