Draft Scout Quinton Dial News
09/06/17 - DT Quinton Dial signed with Green Bay on Tuesday, becoming the seventh free agent the Packers have signed in 2017.
That's the highest number in Ted Thompson's 12 1/2 years as Green Bay's general manager. "The fact that you're making transactions compared to prior years is obviously a little different," Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said. "But it's all part of the business. So, I mean, it's, I think our personnel guys have done a great job staying after it and at the end of the day you're just trying to get better." Dial (6-foot-5, 318) was a fifth-round draft choice of San Francisco in 2013. In four seasons with the 49ers, Dial registered 175 tackles, 4.5 sacks and four passes defensed. Dial started 26 games over the last two seasons, but was phased out when the 49ers switched to a base 4-3 defense this offseason. Green Bay runs a 3-4 defense, which is what Dial is most comfortable in. "I think his measurables are obviously the first thing that jumps out at you when you meet him and have the opportunity to compete against him," McCarthy said of Dial. "He definitely helps us in that area. We'll move him around, whether it's the 1, the nose, the 3 and maybe even look at some of our 4-I technique stuff."
