Austin started the year with the San Francisco 49ers but was placed on injured reserved with a knee injury before the season began and eventually reached an injury settlement with the organization at the end of October.

The 8-year NFL veteran arrived in Green Bay this week and will get a chance to catch passes from one of the best quarterbacks in the league in Aaron Rodgers.

The Packers host the Eagles on Sunday at 4:25 p.m..
