Former Vol Rajion Neal Signs With Green Bay Packers


Former Vol running back Rajion Neal went undrafted on Saturday, but it didn’t take long for him to find a home.

Neal started all 12 games at running back for the Vols during his senior season. He rushed for 1,124 yards and scored 12 touchdowns in 2013.

The Georgia native will be behind at least Eddie Lacy and James Starks on the Packers’ depth chart, if he makes the team.

Neal certainly has the talent to make the team. He’s a capable receiver and he showed flashes of something special this past season at Tennessee.

The Packers got a solid player in Neal. He could’ve easily been drafted, but the lack of an effective running game his first three years at Tennessee didn’t help his case.

He’ll try to follow the road laid out by former Vol running back Arian Foster, who also went undrafted. Foster ended up being a Pro-Bowl running back.

I don’t see Neal getting to that level, but he should be able to stick on a roster.
