Carl-Johan Bjork, a native of Stockholm, Sweden, will join the Packers in training camp and remain on the practice squad throughout the season.

The Green Bay Packers were one of 11 teams to receive an international player as part of the NFL International Development Practice Squad Program, the league announced today.
