The Green Bay Packers wrap up their preseason slate with a game against the Seattle Seahawks on Saturday. That will mark the final big opportunity players on the bubble will have to lock up a roster spot.
Certainly, the tight end situation for the Green Bay Packers remains a conundrum, a puzzle that’s yet to find its final piece. Initially, the pieces were clear: Luke Musgrave, Tucker Kraft, Josiah Deguara, and Tyler Davis. But the unexpected blow of Davis’s season-ending injury sent ripples through those plans, leaving uncertainty in its wake.
Now, the spotlight turns to the likes of Henry Pearson and Austin Allen to fill this role.
Allen, an imposing figure at 6-foot-8 and 253 pounds, carries potential as a roster addition, particularly due to his demonstrated blocking prowess—an attribute in high demand for the Packers. Notably, his Pro Football Focus (PFF) blocking grades have garnered solid marks during the first couple of preseason games.
These five players on the Green Bay Packers find themselves squarely on the roster bubble entering their final preseason game.
Meanwhile, Pearson offers versatility as a fullback, a position that could find utility in Green Bay’s playbook, even alongside the retained Deguara. Unfortunately, Pearson’s recent injury during the last Saturday preseason showdown has cast a shadow of uncertainty on his prospects. His hopes of securing a roster spot may sadly fade away if his absence persists through the preseason finale.
Given Pearson and Allen’s precarious roster position, let’s check out three other Packers who are on the bubble entering the final preseason action.
