The Packers drafted Janis out of Saginaw State Valley in 2014. He played four seasons with the Packers primarily as a special teams returner. The highlight of his career came in the 2015 Divisional Round game against the Cardinals in which Janis hauled in a 41-yard hail marry touchdown pass from Aaron Rodgers as time expired to force overtime. 

Janis joins former Packers Damarious Randall and JC Tretter in Cleveland.
