The Green Bay Packers Tuesday promoted fullback Brandon Miree from the practice squad to the 53-man roster and released linebacker Tracy White. Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations, made the announcement.
Miree (my-REE), a 6-foot, 236-pound player in his second year out of Pittsburgh, had joined the team's practice squad Sept. 4. Miree will wear No. 40.
A seventh-round selection by Denver in 2004, he spent his first season on the Broncos' injured reserve. Miree spent all of 2005 on Denver's practice squad and was released in the team's final roster reduction following 2006 training camp.
