GREEN BAY – The Green Bay Packers announced a flurry of signings Monday, including each of their previously unsigned Day 3 draft picks.

The Packers signed fourth-round receiver J’Mon Moore, fifth-round offensive lineman Cole Madison, fifth-round receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling, sixth-round receiver Equanimeous St. Brown, seventh-round defensive lineman James Looney and seventh-round outside linebacker Kendall Donnerson.

They previously had signed fifth-round punter JK Scott and seventh-round long snapper Hunter Bradley.

It leaves first-round cornerback Jaire Alexander, second-round cornerback Josh Jackson and third-round inside linebacker Oren Burks as the only unsigned players from the Packers' 11-member draft class.

The Packers also announced they signed a pair of tryout players: Notre Dame linebacker Greer Martini and Miami (Ohio) tight end Ryan Smith. Both rookie free agents participated in the Packers' rookie orientation this past weekend.

Vogel to Browns: Former Packers punter Justin Vogel, released Friday in the aftermath of Green Bay drafting Scott, was claimed off waivers Monday by Cleveland.

Vogel set a Packers record as a rookie last season for net punting average (41.6).

He joins former Packers cornerback Damarious Randall and executives John Dorsey, Eliot Wolf and Alonzo Highsmith in Cleveland.

Meanwhile, former Packers backup quarterback Joe Callahan signed with the Eagles.
