Tyson, 26, is a former seventh-round pick of the Seahawks back in 2017. He was waived coming out of the preseason last year before signing on to the Seahawks practice squad and eventually being promoted in December.
The Seahawks, once again, waived Tyson at the start of the 2018 regular season and he elected to sign on to the Texans’ practice squad. The Packers would later claim him off of waivers only to cut him loose at the start of the regular season.
In 2018, Tyson appeared in 10 games for the Texans and recorded five tackles, no interceptions and a pass defense.
Sinkfield, 29, originally signed on with the Dolphins as an undrafted free agent out of Northern Iowa back in 2013. He lasted just a few weeks in Miami before later signing on with the Packers.
Sinkfield has had brief stints with the Bills, Giants, Vikings, Jets and Raiders before signing on with the Giants during the preseason. Unfortunately, New York waived him at the start of the regular season.
Sinkfield has yet to appear in an NFL game.
