The Green Bay Packers have signed RB Patrick Taylor off the New England Patriots practice squad. Taylor signed with the Patriots on Oct. 18, 2023 after he’d been released by the Packers.
Prior to his release, Taylor had spent his entire NFL career with Green Bay. He signed with them as an UDFA after the 2020 NFL Draft. In his four seasons with the Packers, he played in 28 games, including four this season before being waived. Due to joint practices in preseason, New England had become familiar with Taylor.
At 6-foot-2 and 217 pounds, Patrick Taylor had been described by one NFL Draft report as being “built like a comic book hero.” Green Bay brought Taylor back due to depth issues in the running back room. RB Aaron Jones has a hamstring injury. The Packers play on a short week; they play the Lions on Thanksgiving. Bringing in a player they are familiar with makes sense.

If the Patriots came up with a "Brotherly Shove" type play 10 years ago, it would have been banned.
