Packers Announce Signing of New Running Quarterback


On Wednesday afternoon, the Green Bay Packers announced a series of roster changes.

The team released receiver Osirus Mitchell and trucker Steven Wirtell. When those two left, the team brought in Mick Abernathy and running back Dexter Williams.

Williams was selected by the Packers in the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft. After a successful career at Notre Dame, he played two seasons for the Packers, and then moved from one league to another in the last few years.

Here’s more information about Williams from the Packers announcement:

Williams (5-11, 212), a third-year student at the University of Notre Dame, was originally selected by the Packers in the sixth round (number 194th overall) of the 2019 NFL draft. In his first three years, he spent time on Green Bay’s practice squad and active roster, playing in seven games. After the Packers released him after the 2021 training camp, Williams spent time on the practice squad of the New York Giants, Cleveland Browns and Miami Dolphins. Earlier this year, he played for the Philadelphia Stars of the USFL. Williams will play for the Packers at number 34.

Will Williams be able to get into the squad?
