Hill, a 5-foot-10, 210-pound rookie out of Missouri Western, was signed to Green Bay’s practice squad on Sept. 2. He entered the NFL as a non-drafted free agent with the San Diego Chargers and played in all four preseason contests for the club in 2013. Hill finished his collegiate career as the school’s all-time leading rusher with 4,969 yards and 35 TDs on 828 carries (6.0 avg.).

Dunn, a 5-foot-9, 178-pound rookie out of the University of Utah, signed with Pittsburgh as a non-drafted free agent in May 2013 and appeared in all four preseason contests for the Steelers. As a senior at Utah in 2012, Dunn returned 10 kickoffs for 513 yards (51.3 avg.) and a school-record four TDs on his way to earning first-team All-Pacific-12 honors as a kick returner. He will wear No. 13 for the Packers.
