01:05 PM ET 03.26 | The Green Bay Packers have signed kicker Giorio Taveccio as competition for Mason Crosby. Taveccio participated in training camp with the San Francisco 49ers last season, but the team decided to go with veteran David Akers as its kicker. Green Bay is hoping he'll either light a fire under Crosby or provide a viable alternative should Crosby's struggles continue. Crosby made just 21-of-33 kicks in 2012, for a career-low 63.6 percent. His previous career low came in 2007, when he made 75.0 percent of his kicks, 27-of-36.
