(WFRV) – Defensive lineman Tyler Lancaster will be back with the Packers after signing a new deal with the team.

ESPN’s Rob Demovsky was first to report that Lancaster would return, and the team confirmed the news later on Tuesday afternoon.

Lancaster was not tendered at the deadline at the start of the new league year on March 17th. that allowed Lancaster to field offers from other teams.

Ultimately the fourth year defensive lineman came back to the team that signed him as an undrafted free agent out of Northwestern.

Lancaster’s return will provide depth up front alongside the likes of Dean Lowry and Kenny Clark. Last season Lancaster played 352 snaps, and racked up 23 tackles as a rotational player.
