I was told Donnerson and Davis were still in Green bay this morning, that sounds like  they're PS bound.

#Packers are placing OL Adam Pankey on the practice squad, a source told The Athletic. He's a versatile guard/tackle the team hopes to develop.

Packers are placing the two drafted rookies they released yesterday on their practice squad, per sources. They're looking for long-term development from DL James Looney (7th round) and OLB Kendall Donnerson (7th round).

#Packers will not be having ILB Ahmad Thomas back on their practice squad. Thomas is joining the Indianapolis Colts practice squad, a league source said.

LB Greer Martini is coming back to the Packers on the practice squad, a source said. From a tryout at rookie camp to nearly making the roster.

#Packers are signing C Austin Davis to their practice squad. Keeps a true backup center in their system. Could elevate him to active roster if anything happens to starter Corey Linsley.

Good call Donzo, both are on the PS.

Glad to see Donnerson, Looney and Pankey.   The rest...meh.    There have to be better players out there than Martini.  Like to see 3 or 4 receivers on the PS...you know...for depth.

That's 6 so far:

 1. Looney
 2. Donnerson
 3. Pankey
 4. Davis
 5. Martini
 6. Lancaster

I'm thinking a RB, FB and a couple OLB's would be good to finish out the PS.

RT, my cousin saw them as breakfast this morning... The funny thing is, it wasn't Davis with Donnerson, it was Lancaster- lol.

I just shot through twitterverse and nothing new- interesting.

TT always liked to sign his own to the original PS... I'm thinking Gute is gonna bring in a few guys from other teams. They would have to for OLB's.

From the Packer website:

The Green Bay Packers signed the following players to the practice squad: RB Joel Bouagnon, C Austin Davis, LB Kendall Donnerson, FB Joe Kerridge, DL Tyler Lancaster, DL James Looney, LB Greer Martini and G/T Adam Pankey. The transactions were announced Sunday by General Manager Brian Gutekunst.

All eight of the signees to the practice squad were with the Packers during the 2018 preseason.


I’m puzzled by the fullback situation. RIP and Kerridge both cut, then Kerridge, who was injured almost the entire training camp is back for his 2nd (or is it 3rd?) time around on the PS. I guess the advantage is that they don’t, at present, have to use a roster spot for a fullback.

As for Bouagnon, I have no clue what the Packers see in him to warrant a spot even on the PS.

Packers aren't normally fast to announce anything.  So curious to have apparently announced 8, and to have left two spots hanging.....

That's 8 so far:

 1. Looney DL
 2. Donnerson OLB
 3. Pankey OT/OG
 4. Davis OC
 5. Martini ILB
 6. Lancaster NT
 7. Kerridge FB
 8. Bouagnon RB


Gute referenced 2 OLB's on the PS (6 OLBs on the 63- 53 active roster & 10 man PS)... Well, Donnerson is 1 , no one has listed the other OLB or the other PS player.

Yeah, I noticed that too, and wondered.  He just got it wrong?  Or, one of the 9th/10th spots is going to be filled with an OLB, but that guy needed to fly in and hasn't been able to sign and formalize yet?  Or perhaps thinking of Looney as an edge rusher and as a functional OLB option?

Packers fillout their PS with CB Tony Brown and S Marwin Evans.
