Eight players will escape the grip of the Turk as the Packers form their 2013 Practice Squad.
The following players have been signed so far according to various reports and sources. Any reported signings will not be listed here, however, if not reported by a verified member of the media.
2013 Packers Practice Squad:
QB Scott Tolzien: As reported last night by Bill Huber of PackerReport.com, the Packers have added the former Univ of Wisconsin QB to their practice squad. Recently cut by the 49ers, one has to wonder if he’s here for a “brain-drain” on the Packers’ first opponent.
CB James Nixon: Pete Dougherty of the GB Press-Gazette reports Nixon is in the fold.
WR Charles Johnson: per Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post, Johnson cleared waivers and was added to the Packers’ practice squad.
WR Myles White: Wes Hodkiewicz of the GB Press-Gazette says the Packers have added the speedy white to the PS.
TE Jake Stoneburner: This one comes from Stoneburner himself, who tweeted, “The dream continues. Still a packer. #gopackgo”
G Bryan Collins: Per Rob Demovsky of ESPN, via Twitter. Collins was an undrafted rookie recently released by the Houston Texans. With Patrick Lewis off to Cleveland, the Packers wanted to add another developmental body at O-line.
OT Aaron Adams: Packers.com reports the 2013 UDFA cut by Cleveland has been added to the squad.
RB Michael Hill: Packers.com says the Packers have filled out their practice squad by adding Missouri Western’s all-time rushing leader to their practice squad.
