GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The Green Bay Packers have signed quarterback Graham Harrell and released quarterback Chris Pizzotti.

General manager Ted Thompson announced the moves Thursday. The 6-foot-2, 215-pound Harrell set several college passing records at Texas Tech and spent last season with the Saskatchewan Roughriders in the Canadian Football League.

Pizzotti was on the Packers' practice squad for the final five weeks last season.
