|Tramon Williams is returning to the Green Bay Packers to help replenish the secondary.
The team signed the free agent cornerback on Friday. The 11-year veteran spent the first eight seasons of his career in Green Bay Josh Bailey Jersey , intercepting 28 passes in 127 games including 99 starts.
Williams played last season with Arizona after spending two years in Cleveland. New Packers defensive coordinator Mike Pettine was coach of the Browns in Williams' first year in Cleveland in 2015.
Williams, who turned 35 last week, was a respected locker room presence when he left Green Bay in 2014. He returns to help mentor a cornerback position that struggled through an injury-filled season in 2017.
Green Bay may still be looking for cornerback help in the draft or free agency.
Last year's first-round draft pick, Kevin King Adidas Nathan MacKinnon Jersey , showed flashes of promise but his season ended in December because of a shoulder injury. Veteran Davon House is a free agent.
Damarious Randall was traded to the Cleveland Browns in a deal that brought backup quarterback DeShone Kizer to Green Bay.
A 15-game starter as a rookie last season for the winless Browns, Kizer said he was surprised he was dealt away. He threw a league-high 22 interceptions, but showed signs of improvement late in the season.
Now Kizer gets a chance to learn under Packers starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers and potentially compete for the backup job with Brett Hundley.
"I think it's going to be an awesome opportunity to take a step back and learn from (coach Mike McCarthy and offensive coordinator Joe Philbin) and be around some great competitors and get back to winning the way I know how," Kizer said Friday on a conference call.
The Milwaukee Brewers have activated Ryan Braun from the 10-day disabled list after the outfielder was sidelined by a strained back.
Braun returns to a team that has lost seven straight and fallen three games behind of the first-place Cubs in the NL Central. He was hitting cleanup Saturday against the Dodgers and left-handed ace Clayton Kershaw.
Braun is hitting just .235 with 10 homers and 35 RBIs. Manager Craig Counsell says he expects Braun to improve after the outfielder had some bad luck at the plate in the season’s first half.
The banged-up Brewers are slowly getting healthier Barkevious Mingo Color Rush Jersey , with starting catcher Manny Pina returning from DL on Friday from a left biceps strain. Outfielder-first baseman Eric Thames (right hamstring) and starter Junior Guerra (right forearm) are among other key players on the disabled list.
Catcher Jacob Nottingham was optioned to Triple-A Colorado Springs to make room for Braun.
