12:00 Noon Eastern Time was the deadline for waivers to clear after NFL teams made their cuts yesterday, and we should be learning this afternoon which players have been claimed. Similarly, teams are now able to sign players to their practice squads.
As it seems unlikely that the Green Bay Packers will make many waiver claims this weekend, we will be mainly focused on the practice squad additions. As of right now, we know two players who the Packers are working to sign onto the practice squad: quarterback Scott Tolzien, as we learned last night, and now center Patrick Lewis:

We'll be updating this post with practice squad signings as the afternoon rolls along, and here is the roster so far:
QB Scott Tolzien
CB James Nixon
WR Charles Johnson
WR Myles White
TE Jake Stoneburner
G Bryan Collins
Now it appears that Lewis' signing to the Packers' practice squad isn't such a sure thing:
Other teams are making a strong push to sign #Packers C/G Patrick Lewis to their practice squad. Packers are still in it I'm told.— Tom Silverstein (@TomSilverstein) September 1, 2013
It appears that James Nixon is expected to sign with the Packers soon.
Jake Stoneburner himself tweeted this, which is as sure a sign as any that he has been signed to the practice squad:
The dream continues. Still a packer. #gopackgo— Jake Stoneburner (@STONEYeleven) September 1, 2013
Bad news, Packers fans. Patrick Lewis was claimed off waivers by the Cleveland Browns.
Wide receiver Charles Johnson has been signed, according to Aaron Wilson:

The Packers announced the five signings we identified earlier, as well as one more: offensive guard Bryan Collins, who spent time with the Houston Texans in training camp.
