It’s done and gone with and I’m just excited to be here. Being a kid from St. Louis, it’s exciting to be back in the Midwest . It’s [been] a whirlwind couple of days for me. I get released and clear waivers and I had three workouts [with Seattle, Pittsburgh and New England] lined up and I got a call from the Packers and it’s just been a lot of media and a lot of dead cell phone batteries. Somehow I ended up here. It’s kind of exciting.”

The Packers signed Frost without a workout because special teams coach Mike Stock, who also used to work in Washington, has been a longtime fan.
