Adeoye was worked out by the team on Monday. In somewhat of a surprising move, the Green Bay Packers  released cornerback Quinton Dunbar from their practice squad today and signed outside linebacker Aaron Adeoye. The Packers signed Dunbar, who has played in 64 NFL regular-season games, to their practice squad just last week .
Green Bay’s cornerback room has changed more week-to-week than any other unit on the team so far this year. Both Packers starting cornerbacks to open the year, Jaire Alexander (shoulder) and Kevin King (shoulder), missed last week’s game, leaving rookie Eric Stokes and Isaac Yiadom to make starts against the Chicago Bears . Yiadom was pulled quickly for Rasul Douglas , who was picked up off of Arizona’s practice squad in Week 2. Should King, who head coach Matt LaFleur called “day-to-day” on Monday , not be able to suit up against the Washington Football Team , it’s likely that Douglas would make the start at outside cornerback this week, his first with Green Bay.
The Packers must have liked what Douglas brought off the bench in Week 6, as Dunbar was their last veteran option at outside cornerback beyond Douglas and Yiadom. Kabion Ento, the last remaining practice squad cornerback for the Packers, is a 25-year-old wide receiver convert who has yet to play in an NFL regular-season game. Chandon Sullivan and rookie Sehmar Jean-Charles, the other cornerbacks on the Packers’ active roster, have seen playing time almost exclusively in the slot.
Meanwhile, an injury to outside linebacker Preston Smith (obliques) looms. With Za’Darius Smith, Chauncey Rivers, and Randy Ramsey already on the injured reserve list, the Packers could be down to just three healthy outside linebackers this week: Rashan Gary, Jonathan Garvin, and La’Darius Hamilton.
Enter Aaron Adeoye. Adeoye was one of three players worked out by Green Bay on Monday , and his story is about as non-traditional as you’re going to hear. The former college hooper played for four basketball programs, including three Division I programs, before playing a year of football at Southeast Missouri State. His professional career began with stints in arena football, The Spring League, and the Alliance of American Football before opportunities with the Baltimore Ravens  and New York Jets  appeared over the last three seasons. The 28-year-old has only played in one NFL regular-season game (with the Ravens), but the turnaround for a pass-rusher to suit up for game day on a new team is likely the quickest of any position in the sport.
Don’t be surprised if the 6’6”, 250-pounder ends up being one of the two practice squad call-ups for the Washington game this week, even if he’s just there to give Gary, Garvin, and Hamilton some rest. Desperate times call for desperate measures.

I highlighted the line above, maybe they like what they saw from Douglas. That would be awesome.
