  • Jean Francois signed with the Patriots on Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. The signing likely comes as a result of Malcom Brown still being sidelined with an ankle injury, as Jean Francois will be able to add some veteran depth along the defensive line. Jean Francois was released by the Packers last week.

    The Packers released Jean-Francois on Wednesday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. The Packers previously cut Jean-Francois back in Week 1 and then re-signed him in Week 3 when the team needed more depth along the defensive line. The veteran's release this time around will likely open up a roster spot for rookie linebacker Vince Biegel (foot), who is ready to come off the Physically Unable to Perform list.

  • Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Thursday that Jean-Francois would be re-signed to the 53-man roster, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. The Packers will officially confirm the roster move later Thursday, but Jean-Francois will rejoin the squad after being let go a week earlier after being caught in a numbers game. However, with McCarthy revealing Thursday that outside linebacker Nick Perry would require hand surgery, the Packers were in need of extra reinforcements on defense. Ahmad Brooks will be primarily tasked with replacing Perry's production as a pass rusher, but Perry's absence could indirectly end up opening some reps for Jean-Francois as part of the team's defensive line rotation.

    Jean-Francois was released by the Redskins on Wednesday. Jean-Francois racked up 57 tackles and 3.5 sacks for the Redskins the past two seasons but his release saves the team $3 million in cap space according to Brian McNally of CBS Washington. Theoretically, he could still return to Washington at a reduced price, but he'll likely test the waters in free agency first.
