GREEN BAY -- The Green Bay Packers are getting some help along the defensive line in the form of a free agent from the Washington Redskins.

DT Ricky Jean-Francois has signed a one-year deal with the green and gold, according to ESPN's NFL guru Adam Schefter:

Jean-Francois has played eight seasons in the NFL. Drafted in 2009, he first played for the San Francisco 49ers and Indianapolis Colts before landing with Washington in 2015. 

The LSU product has racked up 12 sacks and 93 tackles across his career, and hopefully will be able to help shore up the Packers' defensive line rotation.
