The Packers signed a pass catcher to the practice squad
The Green Bay Packers offense played its best game last week against the Philadelphia Eagles. The Packers scored 33 points in the loss on Sunday Night Football. That was just the second time this year that the Packers have scored 30 points in a game. With the Packers’ record at 4-8, the team might be looking at developing new talent on the practice squad.
The Packers might be looking for a new tight end in the near future. Tight ends Robert Tonyan, and Marcedes Lewis will be free agents in 2023. The Packers have been linked to tight ends via next year’s draft. However, the Packers signed a new tight end to their practice squad Tuesday.
According to a statement by the Packers, the team signed Nick Guggemos to the practice squad:
(GOOG-uh-mohs) Guggemos is a 6-5, 247-pound first-year player out of the University of St. Thomas (St. Paul, Minn.) who originally signed with the Seattle Seahawks on May 6, 2021. After the Seahawks, he also spent time with the Washington Football Team and Cleveland Browns. Guggemos will wear No. 46 for the Packers.
Guggemos still has a ways to go before making the active roster. Lewis and Tonyan have been solid this season. It’ll be interesting to see how the Packers plan to develop Guggemos for the rest of this season.
