In announcing they were releasing punter Jake Schum, the Green Bay Packers also noted that they had signed fourth-round pick Jamaal Williams.
The signing leaves the Packers with just one unsigned draft pick, third-rounder Montravius Adams.
Williams was the first of three running backs the Packers drafted on the final day of the 2017 draft. He would seem to be headed toward the backup role behind Ty Montgomery.
Of course, Aaron Jones and Devante Mays may have something to say about that.
Williams rushed for 3,901 yards and 35 touchdowns at BYU. He’s not particularly fast for a running back (4.59 40), but has good size at 6-0, 212.
The competition for carries behind Montgomery will be somewhat interesting to watch during training camp. That is, if the Packers bother to run the football at all.
