Added to the list today are tackle Aaron Adams and RB Michael Hill.  Adams is a 6’5, 303-pound rookie out of Eastern Kentucky.  He entered the NFL as a non-drafted free agent with the Cleveland Browns, appearing in all four preseason games before being waived.  Hill is a 5’10, 210-pound rookie out of Missouri Western.  He entered the NFL as a non-drafted free agent with the San Diego Chargers and played in all four preseason games before being released.

The Packers had already signed G Bryan Collins, WR’s Charles Johnson and Myles White, TE Jake Stoneburner, CB James Nixon and QB Scott Tolzien.

Tolzien entered the NFL as a non-drafted free agent with the San Diego Chargers in 2011.  Following the 2011 preseason, he was claimed off waivers by the San Francisco 49ers, where he was a member of the 53-man roster for both the 2011 and 2012 seasons, but did not appear in a game.

Tolzien will wear No. 16 for the Packers.
