The Packers brought in a former All-Ivy standout this week
The Green Bay Packers looked seriously at the tight end position this week. The Packers, who have several injuries at the pass-catching position, need all the depth they can get at wide receiver and linebacker this season.
According to Aaron Wilson with KPRC, the Packers brought in two tight ends this week for a workout. They brought in Josh Babicz and J.J. Howland.

The Packers announced they signed Babicz to the practice squad on Tuesday. The Packers will now have two NDSU offensive weapons on the team practicing, as Christian Watson is back at practice this week at wide receiver.
Howland played at Yale
Howland was a key part of the Yale offense. He finished his career at Yale with over 500 yards receiving and four touchdown catches. Howland made the first-team All-Ivy selction in 2021. He was signed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers out of rookie minicamp ths year. The 25-year-old athlete will have plenty of chances to make an NFL team if the Packers don’t sign him in the near future.
