The Green Bay Packers signed quarterback Jim Zorn, who was was waived by the Seattle Seahawks earlier this year.
The Packers released rookie Joe Shield to make room for Zorn.
Coach Forrest Gregg said Zorn will get a crash course in Packer offense, but he does not expect Zorn to see action in Sunday's game at St. Louis.
The 6-2, 200-pound Zorn, who played at Cal Poly Pomona, is in his 10th year of professional football. He was Seattle's all-time leading passer.
