The Green Bay Packers added to their cornerback depth by signing free agent Keisean Nixon.
Signed as an undrafted free agent by the then-Oakland Raiders, Nixon has appeared in 40 games with two starts in his three-year career.
Appearing mainly on special teams, Nixon has 38 career tackles with two quarterback hits and one pass defensed.
Nixon joins a group which includes Jaire Alexander, Eric Stokes, youngsters Shemar Jean-Charles and Vernon Scott and recently re-signed Rasul Douglas.
This move reunites Nixon with new Packers special teams coach Rich Bisaccia, who went 7-6 as the Raiders’ interim head coach last season after the resignation of Jon Gruden. Bisaccia had been the Raiders’ special teams coordinator before taking over for Gruden.
The 5-foot-10, 200-pound Nixon spent two years at South Carolina after transferring from Arizona Western College. He played high school in Los Angeles, where his uncle, Snoop Dogg, coached him in the Snoop Youth Football League.
