Kirksey, 27, was released by the Browns earlier this offseason. He has spent his whole six-year career with the Browns, but has only played nine games over the last two seasons. In his career, he has 484 total tackles and 11.5 sacks.
Green Bay needed to address the inside linebacker position as they are likely to lose Blake Martinez to free agency. If he can stay healthy, Kirksey could be a key piece to help the Packers make a playoff run.
