GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Green Bay Packers signed five free agents, including four defensive players, on Monday.

The team signed linebackers Tim Goodwell and Marcus Randall, cornerback Antonio Malone, defensive tackle Devarick Scandrett and punter David Lonie.

Goodwell, a 6-foot, 237-pound player from Memphis, was originally signed as a non-drafted free agent last spring. He spent part of the regular season on the Packers' practice squad.

The 6-foot-1, 232-pound Randall was out of football last year after being released by the Tennessee Titans following the 2006 preseason. Randall was a starting QB at LSU, then played safety as a Titans rookie before switching to linebacker last year.

Lonie, a former Cal player and native of Sydney, Australia, was released by Washington after the 2006 training camp.
