The Green Bay Packers suffered yet another heart-breaking loss on Sunday. This time it came in the form of a 23-19 nail-bitter against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Yet again the Packers had the ball with a chance to win late in the game and came up empty.
While the Packers may be out of the playoff picture this season, they continue to build for the future. Today they signed a 22-year-old who may be able to do just that.
The Green Bay Packers Sign 22-Year-Old Defensive Back Kyu Blu Kelly After Loss To The Pittsburgh Steelers
According to Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network:
The Packers claimed DB Kyu Blu Kelly off waivers from the Seahawks.
On Monday, the Green Bay Packers shifted their defensive backs unit by signing Kelly.His father, former NFL cornerback Brian Kelly, played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Detroit Lions for more than a decade. In late August, the Baltimore Ravens released the younger Kelly after drafting him in the fifth round of April’s draft.
Following his release, Kelly was signed by the Seattle Seahawks, for whom he played five games this season. In total, he’s played 38 special teams snaps in the 2023 campaign.
There is something interesting about the addition of a cornerback to this 53-man roster.In the wake of the trade of Rasul Douglas to the Buffalo Bills, the Packers’ preferred starting cornerbacks moving forward are Jaire Alexander, who has an injured shoulder, and Eric Stokes, who has a hamstring injury.
Corey Ballentine, who was called up from the practice squad a few weeks ago, and Robert Rochell, who was poached from the Panthers’ practice squad, make up the cornerback depth chart on the team. While Ballentine has played relativley well, it will be interesting to see how they manage this group moving forward.
