The Green Bay Packers have signed cornerback Keisean Nixon. Packers General Manager Brian Gutekunst announced the signing Saturday.
The Raiders signed Nixon, a 5-foot-10, 200-pound player, as an undrafted free agent in May 2019 out of the University of South Carolina. As a senior in 2018, Nixon appeared in 12 games and started 11 of them for the Gamecocks. He recorded 63 tackles (42 solo) and a team-high nine passes defensed.
During his time with the Raiders, Nixon appeared in 40 games with two starts in three seasons. He registered 20 tackles (15 solo) and added 18 tackles on special teams. In addition, as a rookie in 2019, Nixon had a team-high nine stops on special teams. Nixon was primarily a special teams player for the Raiders, playing 692 special teams snaps to just 273 defensive snaps over three seasons.
Nixon will be reunited with Rich Bisaccia in Green Bay, who served as his special teams coordinator and interim head coach in Las Vegas.
