The Green Bay Packers signed WR Bo Melton from the practice squad to the active roster, signed S Tyler Coyle to the practice squad and placed WR Samori Toure (suh-MORE-ee too-ray) on injured reserve. The transactions were announced Monday by General Manager Brian Gutekunst.

Melton, a first-year player who was originally selected by the Seattle Seahawks in the seventh round (No. 229 overall) of the 2022 NFL Draft out of Rutgers, was signed by Green Bay off the Seahawks’ practice squad late last season. He has spent this season on the Packers’ practice squad and active roster, appearing in four games with one start and recording 11 receptions for 156 yards (14.2 avg.) and a TD as well as one rush for 7 yards. Melton appeared in 56 games with 42 starts in five seasons at Rutgers (2017-21), finishing his career ranked No. 3 in school history in games played, No. 6 in receptions (164), tied for No. 8 in 100-yard receiving games (five) and No. 10 in receiving yards (2,011).

Coyle (6-1, 209), a first-year player, was originally signed as an undrafted free agent out of Purdue by the Dallas Cowboys on May 14, 2021. He spent the past two seasons on the Cowboys’ practice squad and active roster, appearing in three games and recording six tackles (all solo) on defense and three tackles on special teams. Coyle was released by Dallas after the 2023 training camp. He spent four years at the University of Connecticut (2016-19) before playing the 2020 season for Purdue. Coyle will wear No. 24 for the Packers.
