The Green Bay Packers are bringing Tramon Williams back ahead of Sunday’s NFC Championship Game.

Coach Matt LaFleur said Williams was in the building on Thursday and would be signed to the team’s practice squad.

“Assuming everything goes right, he’ll be on the practice squad,” LaFleur said. “It’s great to have him back in the building. Such a great veteran leader. He’s obviously played a lot of ball. It’s great to have him in a Green Bay Packers uniform, that’s for sure.”

Williams, 37, was released by the Baltimore Ravens on Monday, opening up the possibility of a return to Green Bay.

The Ravens lost to the Buffalo Bills in the AFC Divisional Round. Williams played in six games with the Ravens, including 12 snaps against the Bills last weekend.

The Packers play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. LaFleur said he’d give Williams the rest of the week to see what he could provide as a gameday elevation from the practice squad.

Williams played all 32 games with the Packers over the 2018 and 2019 seasons. He was the team’s primary slot cornerback last season.

Between 2007 and 2019, Williams played in 15 playoff games with the Packers, tallying 16 pass breakups and four interceptions, including three during the Packers’ Super Bowl XLV run following the 2010 season.
