Free agent Erik Walden has re-signed with the Packers. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, though it’s likely a one-year deal.

Walden finished 2011 with 86 tackles and three sacks. He appeared to be making strides midway through the season after totaling 15 tackles and a sack against Tampa Bay and Detroit opposite starter Clay Matthews.

But after an off-field arrest, his season began to nosedive. Walden regressed down the stretch and was eventually benched. One reason for his poor play was a sickness that caused Walden to lose 15 pounds. Brad Jones finished the season as the starter in the playoffs.
