The Green Bay Packers are a football team, but they’re also a business. And like any business, they need to be constantly on the lookout for fresh talent to add to their roster in order to continue to be successful and profitable.
This post will look at the players who participated in some of the most recent Packers workout sessions, including the lucky few that made the grade and are now the proud owners of a Packers number and a place in the squad. If you’re looking for some Super Bowl betting tips, some of these players might be worth a shot.
What happens during a workout?
During a football workout, the team will evaluate new players to decide if they’re a suitable match. The team will typically watch the players run a series of drills to assess their speed, agility, and technique. The team will also evaluate the players’ ability to follow instructions and their understanding of the game.
Coaches will also analyze the players’ physical attributes, such as size, strength, and stamina. This is usually done through a combination of physical tests, such as bench press, squat, and vertical jump, as well as tests of specific skills, such as passing and catching.
Once the team has completed the assessment, they will discuss the players’ potential and make a decision about whether to invite them to join the team’s practice squad prior to entering into contract negotiations.
Jeff Cotton is a wide receiver who was signed by the Packers to the practice squad in November 2022 after impressing at a recent workout . He spent much of his college career playing for the Colorado Buffaloes. He has the speed and athleticism needed to beat defenders and make the big plays. He has become known for his reliable hands and is a favorite target of quarterbacks, which will be music to Aaron Rodgers’ ears. Cotton wears the number 82 for the Packers.
Free agent wide receiver Ty Fryfogle is tall and long, and uses his height to his advantage. His leaping ability makes him a very tough matchup, as he can out-jump defenders with ease. Fryfogle has also developed a knack for making spectacular catches, displaying an impressive play-making ability. He was invited to work out for the Packers in October ‘22, but so far remains a free agent.
Steven Montez was the starting quarterback for the Colorado Buffaloes. He possesses the arm strength and accuracy to be effective in the NFL. Montez is not only a good passer but also very mobile and can extend the pocket, allowing for bigger plays down the field. His unique dual-threat ability makes him an intriguing prospect. Montez recently signed for the Seattle Sea Dragons XFL team, but was reported to be trying out for the Packers in October ‘22.
Charleston Rambo is a wide receiver from the University of Oklahoma who’s currently signed to the Orlando Guardians XFL team. He’s a very quick and explosive athlete who can beat any defense. Rambo has good hands and doesn’t drop many passes. His versatility makes him a great threat, often lining up in different spots to take advantage of his skillset. Rambo attended a workout for the Packers in October 2022.
Innis Gaines is a safety from the University of Colorado. He’s a ball hawk and is always around the football. His ability to read the quarterback and fit into running lanes makes him a great asset to the defense. Gaines also has great speed and uses it to track down ball carriers. He also knows how to deliver a big hit when one is needed.
Gaines was lucky enough to sign for the Packers practice squad following his recent workout, and on November 28, 2022, the new Packers number 38 received his call up to the full active Packers roster. Fans can expect him to make an immediate impact both on and off the field.
In conclusion, the Green Bay Packers are always looking to improve their team and they take their workouts seriously. They put a lot of effort into finding the right players to join their team and they have a successful track record of doing so.
The addition of the new player to the roster is a sign that the Packers are dedicated to living up to the team’s winning legacy and gives them a better chance for success in upcoming seasons.
With their strong scouting system and commitment to player development, the Packers have a great chance of finding the players who can help them succeed for many years to come.
Lot of Colorado Buffalos, last I checked that school sucked. Why dont Packers get OBJ? I know he won’t add much this year, but next yr fully healthy, we’d have some good WRS. sign him to 2-3 yr deal, Paired with Rodgers would be good thing.
This season is gone anyway, only thing worth waiting for is LaFluer & Gutty get fired
The reason the Packers don’t sign OBJ is two fold, Mike. First, he hasn’t recovered from his ACL injury. As you recall, Bakhtiari took nearly two years to recover from his ACL. While Elgton Jenkins is only recently playing up to his pre ACL injury standard, almost a year and a half later. Secondly, the Packers are about 3 million under the cap. There’s no money to pay OBJ. Besides, we’re wasting enough roster spots on old WR’s who can no longer play. See Sammy Watkins, Randall Cobb, and Marcedes Lewis.
Plus, we don’t need receivers.
Not when you have a top 5 elite defense.
I almost can’t wait until next off season.
When we can receive more football wisdom.
This time i should take notes.
Maybe then, i can pretend to know everything.
Late season tryouts are also used to determine if a team wants to offer a reserve futures contract to a player not currently on the practice squad. Reserve futures contracts can be completed after the regular season ends. It helps set up your next season’s 90 man roster.
Yep, it’s for players who a team thinks they have potential to make the roster the following season.
Maybe the most advantageous reason is that no other team can then touch that player.
Good point Howard on the reserve futures contracts. With the emergence of Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs, WR is no longer a pressing need. Especially adding a one legged WR that can’t run or pass a physical and wants an over inflated contract like OBJ. But that won’t stop Kevin and Mike playing fantasy football. We do need some young developmental depth behind Watson and Doubs and move on from Cobb and Watkins. I still have high hopes for Samori Toure. It’s hard to say which has been more disappointing. Aaron Rodgers or the defense. It was hard to see either one coming this year. A new DC and drafting a pass rusher early fixes the defense. While there’s no fixing being old, tired, and washed up. You can’t fix Rodgers but you can replace him. Fortunately Jordan Love fixes that problem.
Show me where i even mentioned OBJ…even once.
Tom M. = Fiction = lies
Wait a G D minute…
So we don’t have that top 5 defense that you were bragging about for half a year?
Wrong again?…..Say it ain’t so.
Whether it’s OBJ or Jordy Nelson. These are older players who can no longer play due to age or injury. You and Mike saying they can still play doesn’t make it so, Kevin. If OBJ could play, he’d have signed with a playoff contender by now. Certainly not the Packers. If Jordy had anything left, he’d have been offered a contract after he was cut by the Raiders. The phone didn’t ring. I’m as disappointed with the defense as you are with Rodgers performance this year. We both expected more. Jim Leonhard as the new DC fixes the defense. Although smart money says he takes the DC job at USC over the Packers. While Jordan Love gives the Packers options should lover boy decide to retire. These are fixable problems that aren’t in need of a rebuild.
Damn, you really are pathetic.
Do you really need attention this bad?
Are you really this desperate for someone to acknowledge and feed your longing for human interaction?
Again, i never said Nelson could play today, show me where i said that.
I know you can’t, you know that you can’t, so does everyone else here.
Try to act like an adult for once in your obvious miserable life, ok Little Man.
What is your deal?
Ever think about getting help, maybe a dog to talk to?
How about some cats?
If the Packers never cut Jordy, if they signed OBJ now, drafting a WR instead of Jordan Love. All common themes put forth on why Rodgers was never able to win another SB. You can’t play fantasy football with your roster when you pay Rodgers 50 million per season then turn the roster into a county club full of Rodgers washed up buddies like Cobb and Lewis in the receiver room. You’re GM of the Green Bay Packers, Kevin, what do you do? You still trade Jordan Love for a 6th round draft pick? Is it worth passing on a potential franchise QB for the next decade just so we can get one more year of Rodgers playing like this? Is Rodgers just OBJ away from taking this team to the SB next year? Or is Jordan Love, Christian Watson, and Romeo Doubs the future of this team? At some point you have to cut the cord Kevin. At some point reality has to sink in. This is as good as it’s ever going to get with Rodgers. And it isn’t good enough. Enough with the excuses, let’s see what the kid can do.
Whatever you say Little Man.
Did you not watch the SB last year TOM?? I said next season I think he would be a great signing. Dude can still play. Not only that I think Packers could use a presence like OBJ in Locker room & help young guys. Give team shot of juice. I dont think you can count on doubs & watson just yet. Rodgers wiil be QB for next 2-3 seasons, get him some veteran talent. Draft more Offense. Picking Defense for 20 yrs what did it get us??? Defense still SUCKS, be lucky to hold Austin Peay to 30.
I see Mike. Don’t you think OBJ should be able to pass a physical before you offer him this 2 to 3 year contract? He can’t pass a physical, or he’d have been signed weeks ago. And you’ve never explained to me where the money comes from. You gonna pull it out of your ass? Rodgers contract prohibits that. There’s only so much cap money to go around. You can’t have it both ways. Squeeze the organization out of ever last dollar then expect money left for high priced veteran WR’s to pad your stats with. That was always part of Tom Brady’s greatness. He always left money on the table so there’d be players around him. Rodgers never got the memo. And this whole we need OBJ to help Watson and Doubs is pure horse shit. The two rookies are doing just fine. They don’t need OBJ for anything. So you want to take touches away from Watson and Doubs thereby limiting their development to give to a one legged, me first, veteran WR? That’s just stupid. Besides, we already have one diva on the roster in Rodgers, we don’t need two. You never answered my question Kevin. You still on board with trading Jordan Love for a 6th round pick? Or do you just like bitching about everything not named Rodgers. You gonna give up the future because you know in your heart Rodgers and OBJ are gonna win a SB together even though neither can play anymore? At least be man enough to come out and say it. I say next year Rodgers will be no better than he is now. Players who are 39 get worse with age not better. And if he plays like this next year he will be benched. He’s better off retiring and collecting his money than risk embarrassment. Or if he has to play, then get his old man ass traded to Tennessee or San Francisco. Miami is going to be constantly reminded for years to come they screwed up and took Tua over Herbert. Just like Chicago took Trubisky over Mahomes setting the organization back a decade. So then the Packers are gonna risk trading Jordan Love away to be constantly reminded they screwed up just so Aaron Rodgers could have one more vanity filled last year? I just don’t see it. You can call me whatever you like. But what you’re saying make’s absolutely no sense.
“So then the Packers are gonna risk trading Jordan Love away to be constantly reminded they screwed up….”
The day they gave Aaron his new lottery ticket 10 months ago, is the day the Packers told you where they stand with Love.
Love isn’t going to be traded, because they couldn’t get enough for him to justify having to get a new back up.
Now….where is this top 5 defense you were singing about all summer long Scooter?
Blah blah blah blah fucking blah blah blah blah ad nauseam blah….
You need get off the Bottle. Love sucks & they know it. If hes as talented as you seem to think, he’d already be there.; They pick up his 5th year that front office is as incompetent as we all know they are.
I thought Tommi established Love, a franchise QB?
I thought, that was common knowledge here.
We all saw it didn’t we?
Maybe the doubters didn’t see the excellence, the footwork, the running ability, the poise, the escapability, the reading of the defense, going through his progressions, the pinpoint accuracy….
Of his 6 completions.
Wake up people.
