Many changes to the roster were expected as the Packers transition to the Jordan Love era. Several key position battles are going on at training camp. The Packers drafted two tight ends, and one, Tucker Kraft, isn’t in the top two of the depth chart.
The Packers also have a big decision as to who will be the starting safety alongside Darnell Savage. That role currently belongs to Rudy Ford. The offensive line and wide receiver groups should see shakeups as well.
Another notable change in the release is that defensive coordinator Joe Barry will be calling plays in the coaches’ box against the Bengals instead of on the sideline.

Penn State alum Sean Clifford has the backup job at the moment in Green Bay. https://t.co/gprjgSRKvC

Kenny Clark at DE not DT
Musgrave starting at TE
Myers at C and Tom at RT
Savage & Ford at safety
Few things that stick out to me. https://t.co/RZ4dKNC4uA

Reed will be WR3 when Week 1 gets here. Myers/Tom starting (as it should be) https://t.co/HAbFPMaxev

Interesting that Toure is listed as the starting slot even though Reed has seen more snaps, although I expect Reed to start in the regular season. Deguera is now what he always was a FB/HBack. Hollins and Valentine don’t surprise me https://t.co/pOnfddeYE7

Bittersweet not seeing Mason Crosby at K https://t.co/1tut6hvbzt

Innis Gaines listed as the backup Nickel is interesting. Might be the end of Shemar Jean-Charles’ tenure in GB, unfortunately we never really saw anything from him https://t.co/lM8n4FERwU

A few interesting takeaways here…
1. Samori Toure beat out Jayden Reed as a starter
2. Van Ness will likely be in the Gary year 1 role
3. Keisean Nixon more than just a specialist now? 🤔
Also, can we just find a new role for Joe Barry… like waterboy or something?? https://t.co/1jcF0AntJl
