Green Bay, WI (Northland's NewsCenter) --- Former UMD placekicker David Nadeau began his professional football career on Friday, participating in a rookie orientation camp with the Green Bay Packers.

Nadeau was signed to a tryout deal with Green Bay following the 2012 NFL Draft, that after completing a four-year career with the Bulldogs.

A White Bear Lake native, Nadeau was named three times to the all-Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference first team and owns 15 placekicking records at UMD.

The former Bulldog is also the school's all-time leading scorer among placekickers.

He won two NCAA Division II national championships with the Bulldogs, including the 2010 title in which he kicked the game-winning field goal as time expired.

The rookie orientation camp runs through the weekend in Green Bay.
