Former CFL OT Jovan Olafioye met with the Packers last Thursday but was turned down by Green Bay's medical staff.
Olafioye went through a similar charade last offseason, agreeing to a deal with the Rams before being released due to medical concerns stemming from hypertension. "It's my blood pressure, but I've got it under control," Olafioye insisted. "I've been to so many doctors and I've been cleared by them all." Olafioye claims the Ravens and Steelers have also shown interest in him. Wed, Feb 6, 2013 01:25:00 AM
