The Green Bay Packers have signed T Dennis Kelly. General Manager Brian Gutekunst announced the transaction Thursday.
Kelly, a 6-foot-8, 321-pound, 10th-year player out of Purdue, was originally selected by the Philadelphia Eagles in the fifth round (No. 153 overall) of the 2012 NFL Draft. After four seasons with the Eagles (2012-15), he was traded to the Tennessee Titans, where he has played the last five seasons (2016-20). Kelly has played in 104 regular-season games with 47 starts and appeared in six postseason contests with one start. Last season, he started all 16 regular-season games for the first time in his career, helping RB Derrick Henry lead the NFL and set a team record with 2,027 rushing yards during the regular season, becoming the eighth player in league annals to rush for 2,000-plus yards in a season. Kelly was part of a line that helped Tennessee rank No. 2 in the NFL in rushing offense (168.1 ypg) and tied for No. 2 in total offense (396.4 ypg). He will wear No. 79 for the Packers.
