Safety Kyle Sebetic Indicates He's Been Signed by Packers

Safety Kyle Sebetic, a Wisconsin native, indicated on Twitter Wednesday that he's been signed by the Green Bay Packers:

The transaction has not yet been confirmed by either the Packers or the NFL.

Sebetic was one of 103 players to take part in the league's inaugural Veterans Combine on Sunday and the only one signed by the Packers thus far.

Originally entering the NFL last season, Sebetic was signed by the New York Giants in June of 2014 until being released in training camp. He later spent one week on their practice squad during the month of November.

While with the Giants, Sebetic played in four preseason games but didn't record a single tackle. ProFootballFocus.com (premium content) has Sebetic down as playing a combined 13 snaps on defense in Weeks 1 and 3 of the preseason, indicating he played strictly on special teams in the other two contests.

In college, Sebetic was a four-year starter at cornerback for Dayton, which shows some potential for positional flexibility. Sebetic didn't make the switch to safety until he reached the NFL.

During the 2012 season, Sebetic led the NCAA FCS division with 15 pass breakups.

Sebetic played his high school football at Kenosha Tremper.

While with the Giants, Sebetic was listed at 5' 11" and 194 lbs.

As part of his pro-day workout in 2014 prior to being signed, Sebetic reportedly ran the 40-yard dash in a respectable time of 4.51 seconds, according to NFLDraftScout.com, but it was his three-cone drill performance that was particularly impressive.

Pro-day timing isn't as reliable as the NFL Combine, but Sebetic's time of 6.69 seconds would've ranked second among all defensive backs at the 2015 NFL Combine and tied for fourth among 2014 participants. A good time in the three-cone drill is an indication of good change-of-direction skills.

As a street free agent that likely received no guaranteed money as part of the contract he signed, Sebetic is a low-risk signing for the Packers at a time when offseason rosters are at 90 players.

Assuming he didn't receive any sort of bonus, the Packers could cut Sebetic at any time before the start of the season and not take a hit on their salary cap.

UPDATE 3:33 p.m. CT: The Packers made the signing of Sebetic official, listing him at 6' 0" and 197 lbs. for what it's worth.

Haha, I can see Ben's post now! "Elite athlete, packers are dumb for not bringing him in sooner,"(some trade proposal where we give up haha and davante adams)
Edit: and ben posts at the exact time I posted this, lmao.

how can the guy have been participating in the veterans combine if he had never played a single snap in a regular season game? Weird. Just saying. But I like the signing.

Micheal sam was there too but that was for media hype and public relations. I think you just had to have a roster spot and be out of the league currently. Espn had an article about a guy who was injured and rehabbing in what would have been his rookie season and had to plead his case just to get in. Also tim tebow and vince young were rejected because of their past experience in the league. It was more about guys who did not get chances or screwed them up.

Felix Jones was there too. There didn't seem to be much rhyme or reason to who was and wasn't include.

And Vince Young wanted to be there but was denied.

Both of our starting CB's were undrafted free agents developed by Joe Whitt Jr., no reason to stop looking for another rather than overpay for vets still available who they have enough game tape on to solidify their choice not to pursue them.

I dont remember all the details but im pretty sure 105 spots out of a much larger number of applicants participated and matt birk sorted them out.

And who says Thompson doesnt sign FAs, first it was the ILB Francis and now this guy. He may work at a snails pace but at least he is adding some new blood.

Nick Perry's picture

Sorry Clay, the snail is ahead at this point. I'm speechless!

Packer_Pete's picture

He is also trying, despite what many naysayers say:

I just read the article, pretty interesting. The comments under the article are absolutely ridiculous, ignorance at it's finest...

4.51 is a damn respectable time considering how slow the times were overall at that event.

aj's picture

True, I'm thinking they might want to see what he can do in the slot. That's where Hayward and Hyde got their breaks as rookies.

ben's picture

Good. Broke up 15 passes in 9 games in 2012. About the same number Hasean Dix has had in his last 52 games.

Kyle is also faster, quicker, stronger, & can jump higher.

Now, I'm not saying Kyle is better than Dix. But I am saying that Dix is the most over-rated Packer's player since AJ Hawk then Atari Bigby. Even his highlights are unimpressive. Every pick a tipped pass or a poorly thrown ball. Just like when Hawk was making some plays and most every homer here was on his bandwagon. DIx consistently takes bad angles, is a horrible tackler in the open field, and is not good in coverage over the top. (he's pretty good in man to man coverage, can blitz, and can bring some wood IF he's able to line somebody up)

Hyde and maybe Richardson and maybe Banjo are better Safeties. Trade Dix now why you can still get some value.

Ha Ha Clinton-Dix has made everybody's all-rookie team: nfl.com, si.com, bleacherreport.com, profootballfocus.com, chucksmithnfl.com, courier-journal.com, etc.

Ben, you're full of it!

Amanofthenorth's picture

Agreed on Dix. Maybe if we could package him with A. Rodgers we might get a fourth round pick out of the deal. Ben for GM!

You can't help yourself can you danny. You have a problem telling the truth. Everybody else here can disagree with me. But time after time you say things that just aren't true. I've never said that Suh was the best DT to EVER play the game. I said he is great, one of the most dominant you have ever seen, and a future Hall-of-Famer. I said that Ngata is the best NT to ever play the game. If you can name a better NT than Ngata I'd like to here it. At least this time your not actually the one who said what your claiming I have said.

You lie in your day to day life don't you danny. I think you have to. It's the way you try to make up for your intellectual deficiencies. Your a bad guy danny, a sht person.

And not a very funny one either if you think spelling Suh as Sue, referring to "she", and spelling my name differently is at all clever.

f'n moron

Curley Culp?
JOE GREEN???

SERIOUSLY, YOU FORGOT JOE GREEN???

GTFO

NewNikeShoes's picture

Dude, you do realize Dix gave up no touchdowns through the air right? And that he was easily one of the best secondary players in the draft class?

My god, at least put some effort into your stupidity,

Always a good laugh, ben. Thanks again for all the smiles!
