Stryker Sulak has bounced back from his unusual early release by the Oakland Raiders.

The Green Bay Packers have signed the former Missouri pass-rushing star who was a sixth-round draft choice by Oakland in April.

However, Oakland, without any warning, cut Sulak a couple of weeks before training camp started. Sulak participated in Oakland's offseason workouts but was cut before being signed.
Oakland coach Tom Cable said that Sulak was cut because he didn't fit Oakland's scheme. He is a 3-4 player who received interest from teams that run a 3-4 after his release.

Now, Sulak gets a chance to begin his NFL career.
