In need of help on the brink, Packers’ defense turns to Whitney Mercilus.

He also wanted to make sure – after losing a 4–12 season last year and starting 1–5 this year – that he went to the Super Bowl contender, of course, the Packers 5–1.

“To be honest, this is a recovery phase,” Mercilus told Wilson after his release on Tuesday. “Anyone can see it from the outside.

“As far as the direction I want to go, it’s definitely being with a team that has a chance to make the playoffs, and a chance to get into the Super Bowl and be with an opponent, to be honest. This is the direction I want to go. I am at the end of my career for a chance to put cherry on top.

“Honestly, this is a blessing. I’m not sad. I was lucky enough to play 10 years in the NFL, I was a kid from Akron. You’re watching the NFL change lives, change generations. The opportunity to have this in my life has been amazing. I have influenced so many people on and off the field. “

In Texan history, only ex-University of Wisconsin star JJ Watt, who was released by the Texans in the offseason, had more bags (101). Following his release, the Packers showed interest in the Wisconsin native, but Watt signed with the Packers rival Arizona Cardinals the following Thursday.
