The Green Bay Packers’ roster is at the full capacity of 90 players, meaning any new addition would also have to result in a cut. Not to mention that NFL rosters need to be trimmed from 90 players down to 85 by August 17th. But even so, the team continues to hold tryouts.
According to ESPN’s Rob Demovsky, the Green Bay Packers recently worked out Tenny Adewusi (S), Allen Cater (OLB), Landis Durham (OLB), and Bryson Young (DE).
We’ve seen Green Bay make a few additions this offseason after holding tryouts, with the most recent being defensive tackle Josh Avery. We will wait and see if anyone from this group makes the team, but until then, here is what you need to know about each player.
Tenny Adewusi – S
6’0″ – 200 pounds
Coming out of Deleware in 2019, Tenny Adewusi went undrafted that year and signed with the New York Giants. He has no career regular-season NFL snaps and also spent time in the XFL with the Dallas Renegades.
The 6’0″ – 200-pound Adewusi spent four years at Delaware, where he was primarily a boundary cornerback–not a safety. He was a starter for only his final season with very minimal experience before then.
During that 2018 campaign, he recorded 34 tackles and allowed a completion rate of just 53.7 percent on 54 targets and 14.3 yards per catch. Adewusi also added six pass breakups, and opposing quarterbacks had a passer rating of 85.0 when targeting him, according to PFF ($$).
Allen Cater – OLB
6’4″ – 260 pounds
Allen Cater went undrafted in 2020 after spending his college career at North Carolina. At least to my knowledge, he has not yet been on an NFL roster. Cater was in a part-time edge rushing role at UNC during the 2017 and 2018 seasons, then took on a much larger role in 2019.
When it was all said and done, he finished with 27 career pressures, five sacks, and 5.5 tackles for loss. He also had a somewhat high missed tackle rate of over 21 percent during his final season.
Landis Durham – OLB
6’3″ – 255 pounds
Durham went undrafted in 2019 and signed with the Los Angeles Rams. He has been a practice squad player with no career regular-season snaps.
Durham was a two-year starter for Texas A&M as an edge rusher. Over those two seasons, he would record 62 pressures, 22 sacks, and 22 tackles for loss. Also, take it as you will, but Landis was also graded very highly those two seasons by PFF when asked to drop into coverage, which he did for 60 combined snaps.
Bryson Young – DE
6’5″ – 248 pounds
Young went undrafted coming out of Oregon in 2020 and initially signed with the Atlanta Falcons–although he was cut early on in training camp. Young has no career regular-season NFL snaps.
He saw very little playing time during his first three seasons with the Ducks but became a full-time starter in his final season of 2019. That year, Young posted 18 pressures, three sacks, and six tackles for loss. By PFF’s grading system, he was a more effective run defender than pass-rusher.
