Packers add LS Goode, RB Pressley and fill out practice squad

BY foxsports • September 5, 2016

The Green Bay Packers made several moves, including bringing back long snapper Brett Goode and claiming running back Jhurell Pressley off waivers.

The Packers had left a long snapper off their 53-man roster this past weekend, so it was expected they'd fill that spot and did so be signing Goode, who was Green Bay's primary long snapper from 2008-15, playing in 126 regular-season games and 11 playoff contests. He appeared in 14 games in 2015 before sustaining a season-ending knee injury at Oakland in Week 15.

Pressley was an undrafted free agent out of New Mexico who was waived by Minnesota on Saturday. In the preseason with the Vikings, Pressley had 28 carries for 80 yards (2.9 average) as well as five catches for 57 yards with a touchdown. He also had one kick return, which he returned 106 yards for a touchdown. In 2015, he led the Lobos with 907 rushing yards and 11 rushing touchdowns. As a junior, he rushed for 1,083 yards and 12 touchdowns on 114 carries, leading the nation with a 9.5 yards-per-carry average.
