The Green Bay Packers signed former Chicago Bears guard Dejon Allen ahead of their preseason game Thursday evening against Kansas City Chiefs.
Allen, who went undrafted out of Hawaii in 2018, spent the entire season on the Bears practice squad an was waived in May, shortly after this year’s draft. The Packers made no corresponding move since they had an open spot on the roster.
The 6-3, 290-pounder made 49 starts for Hawaii, including 24 starts at left tackle. Green Bay had Allen for a visit prior to the 2018 season.
The Packers host the Chiefs in their preseason finale at Lambeau Field.
