Packers sign former Texans outside linebacker Mercilus

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) Whitney Mercilus' football fortunes changed over the course of less than 48 hours.

In his 10th season with Houston, Mercilus was released by the one-win Texans on Tuesday. Contenders quickly called to express their interest.

Ultimately, Mercilus chose the Green Bay Packers on Wednesday and signed on Thursday. Just like that, he went from a rebuilding team to a championship contender that's won five in a row.
