The Green Bay Packers have signed linebacker Brad Jones, cornerback Brandon Underwood and defensive end Jarius Wynn. The signings were announced Tuesday by Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson.

Jones, a seventh-round selection from Colorado, was a three-year starter for the Buffaloes. He earned honorable mention All-Big 12 honors as a senior after leading the team in sacks (7) and tackles for loss (14).

Underwood, the second of the team's sixth-round picks, was named first-team All-Big East in 2008. As a senior, he led Cincinnati in interceptions with four and also earned the club's special teams player of the year award.

Wynn, a sixth-round draft choice from Georgia, played in 26 games in two seasons for the Bulldogs. He began his career at Georgia Military College, where he earned second-team National Junior College Athletic Association honors in 2006.

The team also announced the signing of tight end Devin Frischknecht and released cornerback Joshua Abrams.

A 6-foot-3, 258-pound rookie from Washington State, Frischknecht will wear No. 46.
