Green Bay returns to the practice field Sunday, and will do so with a third kicker on the roster.

The Packers announced the signing of Zach Ramirez, a free agent who kicked for Portland State in college.  Ramirez spent time in the Seattle Seahawks rookie tryout camp this spring.  He joins Mason Crosby and Giorgio Tavecchio as three kickers on the Packers roster.

The team also announced the release of six players, WRs Alex Gillett, Omarius Hines, and Justin Wilson, QB Graham Harrell, DT Gilbert Pena, and RB Angelo Pease. 

The moves leave the Packers' roster at 85 players.  They must trim the roster to 75 by Tuesday at 3:00 p.m.
