Packers pick up 2 before picking some more

Green Bay signs two former Miami Dolphins

The Green Bay Packers have added two defensive players on the eve of this weekend's NFL draft.  Both spent most of the 2019 season on the Miami Dolphins practice squad.

Defensive tackle Gerald Willis (6-3, 302) was undrafted out of the University of Miami (Florida) and signed with Baltimore but was released by the Ravens at the end of training camp.  He joined Miami's practice squad and was activated for the final two games of the regular season, playing 53 snaps on defense.

Linebacker Jamal Davis II also wound up on Miami's practice squad after originally signing with Houston following the draft.   The Akron product (6-3, 234) later spent time on the practice squads of Tennessee and Indianapolis before landing with the Dolphins.  He was brought up to the active roster for the last three games of the season.

The acquisitions brings the Packer roster to 66 contracted players heading into draft weekend.

I’ve got Green and Gold in my blood having grown up in Titletown and it’s been a treat watching and covering sports from the Packers to the preps for you in Green Bay for Midwest Communications.
As a kid, I chased Packer players for autographs, I’m still chasing ‘em now for quotes on the big play or big game. I’ve had the opportunity to cover Super Bowls, the World Series, Stanley Cup Finals, NBA playoffs and major championship golf over the years but I get just as much enjoyment following the college scene at UWGB or St. Norbert, the Green Bay Gamblers and high school sports.
Our prep coverage was honored as the best of 2007 reinforcing our commitment to give these hard working boys and girls their due.
My work has also been recognized by the Associated Press and Wisconsin Broadcasters Association with several achievement awards.
Outside of the studio, off the field or away from the gym, I’ve had the pleasure of helping dozens of organizations over the years. I’ve served as race announcer and master of ceremonies at the Bellin Run almost from it’s beginning, spoken to various service clubs and hosted charity golf events or team banquets.
My wife Kari and I have raised two active children which has kept us involved in both school and club athletics for nearly 15 years. Chances are you’ll see me on a golf course when the weather’s nice. My roots are deep and that’s why I’m so enthusiastic about this area’s sporting scene, and as I often say, “Watching kids play games helps keep me young!”
Thanks for listening and see you at the game.
