Without confirmation yet coming from the team or the NFL's transaction report, it appears the Green Bay Packers have signed free agent fullback Ina Liaina, according to his agent Angelo Wright on Twitter:
Congrats to SportsWest Client FB Ina Liaina (San Jose State) on signing a 2yr. deal w/ the GB Packers today

This news comes on the heels that the Packers had previously worked out fellow fullback Jonathan Amosa on Monday.
Now that the offseason is upon us, it would appear the Packers want to add depth at fullback with John Kuhn set to become a free agent in March.
Kuhn is coming off one of his best seasons as a blocker but was used the least as a ball carrier since 2009. At 31 years old and just finishing his eighth season in the NFL, Kuhn is one of the oldest players on the team.
Liaina had previously signed with the Miami Dolphins in the spring after coming out of college as part of the rookie class of 2013.
UPDATE: Liana's signing has been confirmed by the NFL's transaction report, being inked to a Reserve/Future contract.
