The Green Bay Packers are adding a body to their injury-ravaged linebackers room after claiming a 'backer who was recently waived by the Baltimore Ravens.

Inside linebacker Nicholas Grigsby will join Green Bay's roster in hopes of sticking in a great situation.

This is another move at the margins for a team in the preseason, but the Packers are desperate for help and Grigsby has some experience in the NFL in his career.

The 27-year-old linebacker has 23 games of experience, including stints with the New England Patriots and Detroit Lions.

Both Oren Burks and Curtis Bolton are dealing with injuries right now in the Packers' linebacker room, giving players an opportunity to step up and make a roster. Burks suffered a pectoral injury, while Bolton exited a preseason game with a knee injury.

If Grigsby wants to stick in this league, his chance is right now. With a thin room in Green Bay, Grigsby has a great opportunity to play hard and earn a roster spot on the new-look Packers.
