Posted Dec 14, 2016

Third-year linebacker has 18 tackles in 32 career games

The Green Bay Packers have signed LB Jordan Tripp. The transaction was announced Wednesday by Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations.

Tripp, a 6-foot-3, 234-pound third-year player out of the University of Montana, was originally selected by the Miami Dolphins in the fifth round (171st overall) of the 2014 NFL Draft. After appearing in 13 games as rookie for the Dolphins, he was released on Sept. 5, 2015. Tripp was signed to the Jacksonville Jaguars’ practice squad on Sept. 22, 2015, and then was promoted to the active roster on Oct. 10, 2015, where he started one of 12 games played and totaled seven tackles (five solo) and a team-high seven special teams tackles. In 2016, he was released by the Jaguars after training camp and spent time on the Seattle Seahawks’ practice squad and active roster, appearing in seven games with one start before being placed on injured reserve on Dec. 3 and then reaching an injury settlement on Dec. 9. Tripp will wear No. 58 for the Packers.
