The Green Bay Packers made a flurry of roster moves on Tuesday. Defensive lineman Dean Lowry was put on injured reserve following an injury he suffered against the Miami Dolphins. Wide receiver Bo Melton was claimed off of the Seattle Seahawks practice squad. Finally, defensive end Tipa Galeai was waived by the Packers.

Tipa Galeai with the Green Bay Packers
As mentioned, Galeai spent three seasons with the Green Bay Packers, mostly on the practice squad. That being said, he did get some regular season action in each of his three seasons.
Galeai played in one game during his rookie season. He was on the field for nine defensive snaps, but did not record a tackle.
Due a string of injuries on the Packers’ defense, Galeai was on the field in seven games for the Packers. In those games, he played 134 defensive snaps (34% of the Packers total defensive snaps) and 60 special teams snaps (30%). Galeai registered 12 total tackles, a sack, and three pressures.
Tipa Galeai appeared in five games for the Packers this season, but did not receive any defensive snaps. He did play 85 special teams snaps (66%) before he was put on injured reserve following Week Five.
