Taylor played in 25 games for the Packers from 2020-21 and had 7 receptions, 80 yards and 1 touchdown. He originally signed with the Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent out of Ferris State and  spent five days with Tampa Bay before joining Green Bay.

Newman (6-2, 297) signed to the PS after he played three games for the Titans and took 12 snaps on offense as well as 11 on special teams. He originally signed with Tennessee as an undrafted free agent out of Baylor in 2022. Newman played 47 games over five seasons for the Bears, including 28 at left guard.
