Packers make practice squad move

GREEN BAY, Wis. — The Packers made a change to their practice squad roster Monday, signing linebacker Micah Johnson and releasing cornerback Otis Merrill.

Johnson is still classified as a first-year player, but he’s been in the NFL since signing with the New York Giants as an undrafted free agent in May 2010. Johnson has been on the practice squad rosters of Miami, Kansas City and Cincinnati. He was most recently with the Bengals in the 2012 preseason.
