9 Players Added to Physically Unable to Perform list
Several players were placed on PUP, according to ESPN’s Rob Demovsky.
Packers full PUP list from today’s transactions:
- Christian Watson
- Robert Tonyan
- Elgton Jenkins
- Mason Crosby
- Dean Lowry
- Kylin Hill
- Hauati Pututau
- Randy Ramsey
- Patrick Taylor
Demovsky also later tweeted that TE Eli Wolf was released. Wolf was added in the offseason as a waiver claim.
The most disappointing name on the list is Christian Watson as he has just come onboard and there is not any public knowledge of him having an injury. Watson is one of five total expected starters on the list.
They have until the season starts, however, to be removed and free of any playing restrictions. If they are not removed, they will be required to miss a minimum of six games and would not count against the 53-man roster. There may be more additions as the official list will be released on Tuesday.
We can all breathe easy going into the season knowing that TE David Bakhtiari is not on the list this time.
TE Sal Cannella Signed Just Before Training Camp Starts
Filling their 90-man roster in the process, tight end Sal Cannella, who worked out with the team on Wednesday, has been signed as the seventh tight end on the Packers roster(following the release of TE Eli Wolf).
Cannella is an undrafted TE out of Auburn who also played in the WR position. He was a part of the all-USFL team following a season with 34 receptions for 368 yards and two touchdowns.

He has played zero snaps in the NFL so far and will be competing within a heavily crowded group of TEs for the Packers.
