The Green Bay Packers have signed five free agents, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson announced Monday.

Additions to the roster are linebacker Tim Goodwell, punter David Lonie, cornerback Antonio Malone, linebacker Marcus Randall and defensive tackle Devarick Scandrett.

Goodwell, a 6-foot, 237-pound player out of Memphis, rejoins the team after originally signing as a non-drafted free agent last spring. Released in the team's final preseason roster reduction, he spent a portion of the regular season on the Packers' practice squad.

Lonie, a 6-foot-5, 210-pound punter who played collegiately at Cal, hails from Palm Beach, a suburb of Sydney, Australia. Signed by the Redskins following college, Lonie was released during '06 training camp. An all-around athlete in high school, he set state track and field records in the pole vault and javelin, and was all-state in soccer.

Malone also re-signed with the team after spending the final two weeks of the 2006 preseason in Green Bay. The 6-foot, 188-pound cornerback is a first-year player out of Toledo who entered the NFL as a non-drafted player signed by Detroit.

Randall is a 6-foot-1, 232-pound player from Louisiana State. Signed by Tennessee as a non-drafted free agent following the 2005 draft, he spent most of the '05 regular season on the Titans' practice squad. Released at the end of Tennessee's 2006 preseason, he was out of football last year. A starting quarterback at LSU, Randall converted to safety as a rookie with Tennessee, then switched to linebacker last year.

Scandrett, a 6-foot-4, 322-pound defensive lineman out of Middle Tennessee State, signed with the Houston Texans prior to 2006 training camp. A non-drafted free agent, he played in a pair of preseason contests before Houston released him last August.
