GREEN BAY, Wis. — The Green Bay Packers have claimed James Turner off waivers from the Detroit Lions and once again have a three-man competition for the kicking job. Turner kicked for Michigan's national championship team last year after spending four seasons at Louisville. Green Bay added Turner one day after releasing former Georgia kicker Jack Podlesny. The other two kickers on the Packers' roster are incumbent Anders Carlson and former Minnesota Viking Greg Joseph. The Lions released Turner on Tuesday after signing kicker Jake Bates from the United Football League's Michigan Panthers.
