The Green Bay Packers released an undrafted free agent safety to make room for a veteran wide receiver.
The team announced the release of safety Frankie Griffin and the signing of receiver Malik Turner on Wednesday.
The moves keep the Packers at 80 players on the roster.
The headline here is Turner, who caught 15 passes for 245 yards and a touchdown over 15 games with the Seattle Seahawks last season. He’ll join a receiver room that lost Devin Funchess (opt out) and needs the depth.
Seahawks quarterbacks had a 120.6 passer rating and completed six passes over 20 yards when targeting Turner last season. He caught his lone touchdown pass on a trick play against the Philadelphia Eagles in late November.
The expense of adding Turner was losing Griffin, an undrafted rookie from Texas State.
Turner will wear No. 82 with the Packers.
