The NFC North-leading Packers have 14 sacks in six games and have made other attempts to address their pass rush.
Mercilus, 31, said upon his release he wanted to latch on with a team likely to play in the postseason.
“As far as it goes, (I’d like) to be with a team that has a chance to make it to the playoffs, to make it to the Super Bowl,” he said. “To be with a contender honestly is the direction that I want to go.”
