According to Rob Demovsky, the Packers worked out four players on Tuesday including DB Kevin Peterson, DB Jeremiah McKinnon, DB Keith Baxter, and RB Brandon Burks.

Baxter originally signed on with the Vikings as an undrafted free agent out of Marshall in May of this year. Unfortunately, Minnesota decided to waive him back in July shortly after he was hospitalized for an undisclosed reason.
During his four-year college career, Baxter recorded 67 tackles, two sacks, a fumble recovery, three interceptions and eight pass defenses.
McKinnon, 23, wound up going undrafted out of Florida International back in May before signing a three-year, $1.62 million contract with the Cowboys. He was set to make a base salary of $450,000 for the 2016 season when he was waived with the injury designation.
After reverting to the Cowboys injured reserve list, Dallas later waived him with a settlement back in September.
The Panthers brought McKinnon in for a workout last week but did not sign him to a contract. He has yet to appear during an NFL game.
During his four-year college career, McKinnon recorded 104 tackles, a half sack, five interceptions with one being returned for a touchdown, 14 pass defenses, four forced fumbles and two pass defenses.
