The Green Bay Packers have signed linebacker Desmond Bishop and kicker Mason Crosby, two of three successive selections made by the club in the sixth round of the 2007 NFL Draft. Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations, announced the signings Monday.
Bishop, a 6-foot-2, 241-pound player from California, was selected 192nd overall. A first-team All-Pac 10 selection in 2006, he became the first Cal player in 13 years to lead the conference in tackles.
Crosby, a 6-foot-1, 212-pound player from Colorado, was chosen 193rd overall. A three-time All-Big 12 selection, he established a total of 31 game, season and career records at Colorado.
The team now has signed seven of its 11 draft selections.
