Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported the news, although no compensation is known at this time. The Giants were planning to release Goodson if they did not find a trade.
The 26-year-old recorded 61 tackles last season while starting 13 games with the Giants. The 2016 fourth-round pick out of Clemson has started 20 of his last 22 appearances and was well on his way to a breakout at the middle linebacker spot in 2017 before being injured.
The Packers have a hole on their roster after Oren Burks went down with a torn pectoral during camp. Burks was expected to play a major role in his second NFL season.
Goodson struggles with pass coverage, so the Packers will probably use him in a limited role on first and second downs. He lost his job during the preseason in New York after missing time due to a hamstring strain.
The Packers nevertheless see some value and are filling a need with a player with starting experience who is still in the midst of his prime.
