NEWS CENTER - Two weeks after being released by the St. Louis Rams, Penobscot Valley and UMaine alum Matthew Mulligan has found a new NFL home with the Green Bay Packers.
The five-year veteran agreed to a one-year deal with the Green Bay Packers. The tight end and special teamer also had an offer from the San Francisco 49ers, but opted for the "Pack" because of more guaranteed money. He'll join former Black Bear Jerron McMillain in Wisconsin, who was a fourth round pick by Green Bay last year. Mulligan became the first Mainer to score a touchdown in the NFL back in September.
The change in organizations also brings a change in the culture of winning for Mulligan, who went from a franchise that hasn't had a winning season in a decade to an organization that's only had two losing seasons in the past 21 years.
