The Green Bay Packers signed two more players to futures deals after signing 10 from their own practice squad on Tuesday.

The team announced the signing of receiver Rico Gafford and cornerback Kiondre Thomas.

Gafford (5-10,184) is an undrafted free agent from Wyoming (2018) who has spent time with the Tennessee Titans, Las Vegas Raiders, Arizona Cardinals, Buffalo Bills and Denver Broncos. In eight career NFL games, he has two catches for 66 yards, including a 49-yard touchdown. He also returned one kickoff for 12 yards.

Thomas (6-0, 185) is an undrafted free agent out of Kansas State (2021) who has spent time with the Cleveland Browns and Los Angeles Chargers. He was elevated for four games with the Chargers in 2021 and played 28 snaps on special teams, tallying one tackle.

Both were practice squad players for their respective teams in 2021. The Packers reported tryouts for both players on Tuesday.

Reserve-future deals become active at the start of the new league year. Both Gafford and Thomas will be on the team’s 90-man roster to start the 2022 league year.
