QB Aaron Rodgers and S Matt Giordano shake hands after Green Bay's 34-14 victory over the Indianapolis Colts on October 19, 2008. The pair were college teammates at California.
The Green Bay Packers have signed S Matt Giordano to the active roster, released S Aaron Rouse and signed T Dane Randolph to the practice squad. Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations, announced the transactions Wednesday.
