The Green Bay Packers have re-signed veteran DL Ricky Jean Francois on Wednesday, according to Ian Rapoport.
The Packers are dealing with a number of injuries and given that Jean Francois spent the summer working with the team, it makes sense that they would bring him back.
Francois, 30, is a former seventh-round pick of the 49ers back in 2009. He played four seasons for San Francisco before departing and signing on with the Colts as an unrestricted free agent.
After two years, the Colts cut Jean-Francois loose and he signed a three-year, $9 million contract with the Redskins in February of 2015. Washington released him during the offseason and he later signed a one-year, $3 million contract with the Packers.
Unfortunately, Green Bay cut him loose a week ago.
In 2017, Jean Francois has appeared in one game but has yet to record a statistic.
