The Packers add former Baylor wideout Antwan Goodley to the practice squad and place tight end Devon Cajuste on the injured list.

Baylor v Texas Tech

As the Green Bay Packers gear up for their NFC North-deciding clash with the Detroit Lions next weekend, they continue to look for ways to improve the roster. On Tuesday, the team announced the signing of wide receiver Antwan Goodley to the practice squad.

Goodley, a 5-foot-10, 212-pound receiver out of Baylor University, entered the league as an undrafted free agent in 2015. He spent time with the Dallas Cowboys during last year's training camp as well as a stint on the Seattle Seahawks' practice squad last December and January.

To make room for Goodley's signing, the Packers placed tight end Devon Cajuste on the injured list.

In four collegiate seasons, Goodley caught 150 passes for 2,366 yards and 21 touchdowns. His best season came in 2013, when he hauled in 71 balls for 1,339 yards and 13 scores. Goodley also returned kickoffs at Baylor, averaging 23.0 yards per return. The Packers have issued him uniform No. 19.
