Over the last two seasons, he spent time on the Jets’ practice squad and active roster, appearing in two games in 2018. Braden appeared in 38 games with 36 starts over four years at Michigan, where he was twice named All-Big Ten and earned second-team honors as a senior and honorable mention recognition as a junior. He will wear No. 71 for the Packers.
