The Green Bay Packers are set to conclude their training camp with the last practice on Thursday (closed to the public) and the preseason finale on Saturday night. These remaining opportunities offer players some of their final chances to secure a spot before the team’s roster gets trimmed from 90 to 53 players on August 29.
While many positions are settled, there remain several uncertainties that the Packers’ front office must address when making roster decisions. To provide a clearer picture before their final preseason game, let’s delve into each position and project how the roster might shape up.
Here’s a projection about what the Green Bay Packers initial 53-man roster could look like entering their final preseason game.
Quarterback (2): Jordan Love, Sean Clifford
Cut: Alex McGough
The Packers were always going to roll with two quarterbacks, especially after the cut Danny Etling earlier in training camp. With Aaron Rodgers’ departure, Love is set to lead the team, and the preseason has shown glimpses of his potential.
Keeping only Love and Clifford provides the team stability at the position, allowing them to develop two young quarterbacks. Clifford’s surprise performances have exhibited his capabilities as a reliable backup option. This approach enables the Packers to allocate resources to other positions of need, ensuring a more balanced roster.
