Packers announce 12 signings to practice squad

·1 min read

The Green Bay Packers announced 12 signings to the team’s 16-player practice squad on Wednesday.

All 12 were in training camp and played in preseason games for the Packers this summer.

The Packers also announced the signing of safety Rudy Ford, a move that was reported earlier Wednesday. The corresponding roster move was releasing safety Micah Abernathy, who could be a strong candidate to return to Green Bay on the practice squad.

The following players were signed by the Packers after clearing waivers on Wednesday:

QB Danny Etling
RB Patrick Taylor
RB Tyler Goodson
WR Travis Fulgham
OL Caleb Jones
DL Jack Heflin
DL Chris Slayton
OLB La’Darius Hamilton
OLB Kobe Jones
ILB Ray Wilborn
CB Rico Gafford
CB Kiondre Thomas

Kicker Ramiz Ahmed and cornerback Benjie Franklin were both reported signings who are not included on Wednesday’s list. It’s possible logistical issues could be causing a holdup.

If Ahmed and Franklin are both signed, the Packers will have two open spots on the practice squad – possibly for Abernathy and receiver Juwann Winfree.
