The Green Bay Packers announced they signed an offensive lineman to the practice squad Tuesday. The Packers worked out three interior offensive linemen on Monday.
The workouts came after the Packers’ entire offensive line dominated the Chicago Bears in Week 1. However, the Packers decided to upgrade their depth on the offensive line.
The Green Bay Packers signed Michael Jordan to the practice squad
According to a statement by the Packers, the team signed offensive lineman Michael Jordan to the practice squad Tuesday. To make room for Jordan, the released Austin Allen:
“Jordan (6-6, 315), a fifth-year player out of Ohio State, was originally selected by the Cincinnati Bengals in the fourth round (No. 136 overall) of the 2019 NFL Draft. After two seasons with the Bengals (2019-20), he played the past two years with the Carolina Panthers (2021-22).
Overall, Jordan has played in 55 regular-season games with 29 starts at left guard. He played right guard for his first two seasons in college before switching to center as a junior. Jordan earned first-team All-America honors from SI.com and second-team honors from the Walter Camp Football Foundation in 2018. Jordan will wear No. 79 for the Packers.”

One of the lessons every team learned last night, with Aaron Rodgers’ injury, is that having a potent offensive line is as important as having a star quarterback. Even with the Packers having the best pass-rush win rate in the league in Week 1, making the weakest link on the offensive line stronger helps the team.
