The Packers announced Monday that they’ve waived CB/KR Tremon Smith.
Green Bay’s return game has been terrible this season, so it appears as though they plan to give Ervin a shot to see what he can do with the opportunity.
Ervin, 26, is a former fourth-round pick of the Texans back in 2016. He spent over two years in Houston before he was waived later signed to the Ravens’ practice squad.
Baltimore brought Ervin back on a futures contract only to waive him coming out of the preseason. The Jaguars later claimed him off waivers before cutting him loose last week.
For his career, Ervin has appeared in 31 games for the Texans and Jaguars and rushed for 15 yards on five carries. He has also caught 14 passes for 91 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
Smith, 23, is a former sixth-round pick of the Chiefs back in 2018. He signed a four-year, $2.6 million contract with Kansas City but was placed on waivers and later claimed by the Packers.
In 2019, Smith has appeared in eight games for the Chiefs and Packers and recorded two tackles to go along with 303 kick return yards.
During his college career at Central Arkansas, Smith recorded 113 tackles, two forced fumbles, a recovery, one sack, 53 pass defenses and 15 interceptions over the course of four seasons and 48 games.
