The Green Bay Packers made a change at WR today. However, it was not one many fans anticipated happening. With the Packers’ 2022 fading fast many fans are begging the Packers to make a splash move at wide receiver. Names like Odell Beckham Jr. and Will Fuller have floated around as potential help for the Packers’ passing game. Instead, the Packers decided to sign a 2020 undrafted free agent out of Idaho. Jeff Cotton is now a Green Bay Packer.
Packers Sign Undrafted Free Agent WR Jeff Cotton To Practice Squad
The Green Bay Packers have signed WR Jeff Cotton to the practice squad. Cotton was a JUCO All-American at Pima College, catching 43 passes for 837 yards and six touchdowns in 2016.
He was already joining the Packers WR group on the practice field during Wednesday’s practice. Cotton went undrafted out of Idaho in 2020. He played one snap in his only regular-season game. In 2020, Cotton spent training camp with the Los Angeles Chargers. The now Packers WR failed to earn a roster spot, however, he spent the year on their practice squad. In 2021, he flew out east and conducted training camp with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Jeff Cotton wound up earning a spot on their practice squad. He played in the regular-season finale, getting his lone snap on offense and 14 more on special teams in that game. Before the 2022 season, he competed for a spot with the Jaguars but was released among their final cuts. His most recent stint was spending a week on the Arizona Cardinals’ practice squad back in September.
Following the signing of Jeff Cotton, Packers fans will still be looking for a WR “splash signing” that could help the team immediately. These types of signings certainly seem to be taunting fans at times.
