Offensive lineman signs deal

Allen Barbre

Barbre the fifth of Green Bay's 11 draft picks under contract

Offensive lineman Allen Barbre, selected in the fourth round of April's NFL draft by the Packers, signed a contract with the team on Friday, according to a source with access to NFL Players Association data. Terms of Barbre's contract were not immediately available.

Barbre is the fifth of Green Bay's 11 draft picks to sign a contract. Safety Aaron Rouse, wide receiver David Clowney, running back DeShawn Wynn and tight end Clark Harris signed contracts with the team in June.

Barbre, selected 119th overall, played left guard behind Daryn Colledge in the Packers' off-season minicamps and Organized Team Activities practices. Barbre played left tackle while at Missouri Southern State where he started 33 of 37 games. Barbre had 254 knockdown blocks and registered 10 tackles (nine solos) on special teams. He was the first player from his school to be invited to the NFL Combine, and the first player to earn first-team All-American honors since Richard Jordan in 1996. Barbre was a first-team All-Mid America Intercollegiate Athletic Association honoree in 2005 and 2006. Recommended Stories
