The Green Bay Packers have signed long snapper Brett Goode and released long snapper Derek Hart. The transactions were announced Tuesday by Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson.
Goode, 6-foot-1, 255 pounds, is in his 10th season in the NFL. He was originally signed by the Jacksonville Jaguars as an undrafted free agent from the University of Arkansas in 2007. Goode spent part of two off-seasons with Jacksonville before signing with the Packers on Sept. 1, 2008. He served as Green Bay’s primary long snapper from 2008-16, playing in 142 regular-season games and 14 playoff contests, and for the first three games this season before suffering a hamstring injury. Goode will wear No. 61 for the Packers.
