The Green Bay Packers apparently brought back six players to practice on Monday following their one-point loss to the Atlanta Falcons. According to NFL reporter Aaron WilsonThe six players consisted of two running backs (Jerrion Ealy and Ellis Merriweather), one receiver (Thyrick Pitts) and three cornerbacks (Cameron Brown, Delonte Hood and Raschad Wildgoose).

Ealy is a smaller pass-catching running back. According to Pro Football Focus, Ealy was the Ranked second in pass catching in college football. during the 2021 season and finished third among running back ratings versus men’s coverage during that season.

In preparation, Ealy was an Under Armor All-American in both football and baseball and was named MVP of the Under Armor football game. Following his college career at Ole Miss, Ealy signed with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2022. Last season, he was suspended for six games for PEDs and was recently suspended on cuts.

There’s about a 30-pound difference between Ealy and Merriweather, as each brings something different to the table. However, Merriweather, the bigger running back, has some pass-catching ability, despite his less-than-stellar athletic ratings.

What’s interesting about Merriweather is that he spent time with the New Orleans Saints this preseason, the Packers’ next opponent. One has to wonder if he could give Green Bay a little information about his former team. Since he was released from the Saints’ practice squad this season, Merriweather has worked out with the New York Giants, New York Jets and Atlanta Falcons.

If there is a big receiver available, they will bring him in to work out with the Packers. At 6’2” and 201 pounds, Pitts fits the mold Green Bay is looking for at the position and has a 4.45-second 40-yard dash to go with his size.

The Delaware product originally signed as an undrafted free agent with the Chicago Bears, but was claimed by the New England Patriots in August.

Brown, the first of the three cornerbacks we’ll discuss, is an undrafted rookie out of Ohio State after running a 4.57-second 40-yard dash during the pre-draft process. In total, he started 15 games for the Buckeyes, eight of them in his senior season.

Hood comes from Peru State, an NAIA (non-NCAA) program in Peru, Nebraska (population: 648). His 4.42-second 40-yard dash put him on the radar of the Cincinnati Bengals, who signed the Toledo transfer undrafted. free agent in 2022. After spending his rookie season on the Bengals’ practice squad, Hood signed a futures deal with the Denver Broncos, who waived him in cuts.

Wildgoose, a product of the University of Wisconsin, was drafted by the Buffalo Bills in 2021. Originally a member of the team’s practice squad, Wildgoose was drafted by the New York Jets, for whom he would play during his rookie season. The Jets would release Wildgoose during cuts in 2022, leading to the Washington Commanders claiming him off waivers. In August, Washington resigned from Wildgoose.

Over the past two seasons, Wildgoose has played in 20 games, including three starts for Washington, totaling 196 defensive snaps and 119 special teams reps.

So far, the Packers have not officially announced the signing of any of the players signed on Monday.
