The Packers have signed free agent defensive lineman Muhammad
Wilkerson and also acquired quarterback DeShone Kizer.

The team announced the moves a day after the opening of free agency.

Kizer was acquired in a trade with the Browns for cornerback Damarious
Randall with drafts picks also involved.

Kizer is expected to serve as the backup to Aaron Rodgers. Kizer was selected
by the Browns in the second round of the 2017 draft. He led the NFL with 22
interceptions Arian

, went 0-15 and went through numerous growing pains
as a rookie starter.

Wilkerson was selected by the Jets in the first round of the 2011 draft. In
seven seasons, he played in 105 regular-season games and had 498 tackles (324
solo), 44陆 sacks, two interceptions, 10 forced fumbles and a fumble recovery
that he returned for a touchdown. In 2015, he earned a spot in the Pro Bowl
after getting a career-best 12 sacks.

The Packers also signed cornerback Herb Waters. He was signed by Green Bay as
an undrafted rookie out of Miami (Fla.) on May 6, 2016.

Josh Gordon’s new
route through life, a straight and sober one, is rewarding him every day.

Given another chance to revive an NFL career he nearly threw away due to
addiction, Gordon is embracing moments he once ignored.

”Right now for me it’s a bunch of the small victories day to day, just being
able to come to work,” the Browns wide receiver said Tuesday while reflecting on
his dark past. ”Like the little Jack

, little things. Having some structure in my

Gordon is counting his blessings – football, fatherhood and fame – as the
former Pro Bowler, who erupted on the league in 2012, continues a twisted
comeback that looked hopeless at some many junctures over the past few

Now 27, Gordon, who revealed following his most recent drug suspension last
season that he had wandered streets in Florida in search of his next fix, is
living in the moment. He’s savoring small victories.

”To me, it’s just like getting up and not having to worry about whether or
not you have some type of security or a place to stay,” he said.

”Spending time with my daughter. ”I didn’t have much time, didn’t get to
spend any time with my family like that in the past. Being there with friends.
Working toward the future. Those are things I look forward to doing, and I take
pride in and joy in.

”Just coming to work. Being able to talk to guys, see guys’
expressions Bo
Scarbrough Jersey
, interact with them … a lot of little things. I
take a lot of joy in that.”

Gordon has found inner peace. The Browns are hoping he can keep it.

Because of his off-field issues, Gordon has played in just 10 games since
2013. He returned for Cleveland’s final five games last season, and showed some
of the flashes that helped him lead the league in yards receiving as a rookie in

The talent has always been there.

Sadly, so has the trouble.

But Gordon believes he’s changed personally, and he’s now prepared to help
the Browns bounce back from a 0-16 season and perhaps shock the league in

Gordon feels strongly about his team, which acquired three-time Pro Bowl wide
receiver Jarvis Landry and quarterback Tyrod Taylor in offseason trades.

”I think we’re the best receiving corps in the league, in my opinion, already
just based off of talent alone,” Gordon said. ”So, you put in the playbook and
some guys that are hungry enough to go do it, and hopefully, we go out there and
show and prove that. We’re not short on talent at the wide receiver position at

Landry agrees.

”He ain’t lyin’ Logan
Thomas Jersey
,” said Landry, who caught 400 passes and 22
touchdowns during three seasons in Miami. ”I think the capability of what we all
can do is endless.”

Gordon also feels Taylor, who led Buffalo to the playoffs last season, and
No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield are the best quarterbacks he’s had in

”By far,” Gordon said. ”It’s going to be an interesting thing to watch the
quarterback battle go on, but you’ve got a proven guy in Tyrod. We’ve got a
young talented guy in Baker. I don’t see how it can go wrong, really. … I don’t
know a quarterback that works harder than Tyrod. He’s definitely set the bar.
And then Baker, he’s right behind the guy and looking up to a guy that can show
him the exact things you need to do to be a professional quarterback in this
league. So from a quarterback standpoint, we’re really set. We’re really

Cleveland’s success will also hinge on Gordon staying available.

He said this is the first time he’s participated in the team’s complete
offseason program, and as he nears the start of another new season and another
shot at redemption, his goals have shifted.

”More than anything, I really just want to win Erik
Swoope Jersey
,” he said. ”Whatever it takes for me to get some
wins and do my part where I leave no doubt, no question in anybody’s mind that
Josh did everything he could do to try and get us a win, then I can walk away
with whatever the stat line is. More than anything, I’d rather be a winner.”

To this point, Gordon has harnessed his demons.

He’s learned not to run tomorrow’s race.

”To me it’s just one day at a time,” Gordon said. ”You know, you got today
and that’s all we’re really given. The next day, if I’m blessed with the
opportunity to wake up, I’ll try to attack it with the same mentality and
mindset. And have the same perseverance, same set of goals and try to stick to
that day by day.”
