Mercilus is expected to join the Packers, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports Wednesday.

Mercilus was cut by the Texans on Oct. 18 in his 10th year with the franchise. The 2012 first-round selection had appeared in all six games this season, recording three sacks and 12 tackles (six solo), four of which were for a loss. If the deal goes through, Mercilus would add an experienced pass rusher to the Packers, who currently rank 10th in the league in sacks per game.
