The Green Bay Packers' season hasn't ended yet, but already the front office has begun planning for the future. Tuesday evening, the team announced a trio of roster moves, including the addition of defensive tackle William Campbell to the practice squad, the placing of defensive end B.J. McBryde on injured reserve and the signing of quarterback Ryan Williams to a futures contract.

Campbell arrived in the NFL as a 2013 sixth-round pick of the New York Jets. He spent his first season converting to the offensive line, though based on the Packers' press release it appears they envision him as an interior defender.

As for Williams, he becomes one of the team's first players tabbed for the offseason 90-man roster. The 6-foot-4, 215-pound quarterback played his college ball at Memphis before transferring to the University of Miami (Fla.), where he made 10 appearances and completed nearly 70 percent of his passes.
