The Packers confirmed the news and announced that they’ve also signed TE John Lovett and WR Darrius Shepherd to the active roster.

Winn, 31, is a former sixth-round pick of the Browns back in 2012 out of Boise State. He signed a four-year rookie deal through the 2015 season. 

At the start of 2015, Winn was traded by the Browns to the Colts for a conditional seventh-round pick. From there, he signed on with the Broncos the following year and returned to Denver in 2019 on a one-year deal. 

The Broncos placed Winn on injured reserve last year with a triceps injury and opted to cut him loose this past March. He signed on to the Packers’ practice squad a few weeks ago. 

In 2016, Winn appeared in 16 games for the Broncos, recording 19 total tackles, one tackle for loss and one fumble recovery.
