The Green Bay Packers have re-signed wide receiver Karsten Bailey to a multi-year contract, GM/Head Coach Mike Sherman announced Monday.
Bailey spent the '02 season with the Packers primarily contributing on special teams, making 4 tackles. He played in seven regular-season contests and was inactive for the other nine. He caught 3 passes for 26 yards as a reserve wide receiver during the regular season and added 1 reception for 11 yards in the postseason contest vs. Atlanta.
Bailey, 6-0 and 205 pounds, originally was selected by the Seattle Seahawks in 1999, where he played in 11 games in two seasons and totaled 6 receptions for 62 yards. He was waived in the final cutdown of the preseason, Sept. 2, 2001, and remained out of football until signing as a free agent with the Packers on Feb. 5, 2002.
An Auburn University product, Bailey was a four-year letterman starting 37 games throughout his career including every contest as a junior and senior. He finished as the school's all-time leading receiver with 150 receptions.
