Packers signs two new players and releases Robinson

The Green Bay Packers signed Central Michigan's Andy Phillips and Miami University's Quinten Rollins and released Luther Robinson on May 11.

The transactions were announced Monday by Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations.

Phillips, C/G, is from Lansing, Mich. He is 6 feet and 2 inches, and he weighs 303-pounds.

Rollins, CB, from Wilmington, Ohio. He is 5 feet and 11 inches, and he weighs 195-pounds. 

Phillips, 23, started 43 games at Central Michigan, with 38 coming at left guard and five at center. He earned first-team All-Mid-American Conference honors as a senior and was named second-team All-MAC as well as CMU's Offensive Upfront Player of the Year as a junior. In 2012, Phillips helped anchor an offensive line that allowed just 15 sacks, which ranked No. 17 in the nation.

Robinson signed with the Packers as a non-drafted free agent on May 19, 2014, after participating in the team's rookie orientation camp on a tryout basis. He spent the first four games of the 2014 season on Green Bay's practice squad before being signed to the 53-man roster on Oct. 2. Robinson played in five games before being placed on injured reserve on Dec. 8.
