The Green Bay Packers announced Thursday that they’ve signed WR DeAngelo Yancey to their practice squad and released LB Greer Martini from the unit.
The Packers’ practice squad now consists of:
- RB Joel Bouagnon
- LB Kendall Donnerson
- FB Joe Kerridge
- DL Tyler Lancaster
- DL James Looney
- G/T Adam Pankey
- DB Will Redmond
- OT Anthony Coyle
- DL Deon Simon
- WR DeAngelo Yancey
Yancey, 23, is a former fifth-round pick of the Packers back in 2017. He signed a four-year, $2.62 million contract with the Packers and was set make base salaries of $465,000 and $555,000 over the first two years of the contract when the Packers waived him at the start of last season.
Yancey later re-signed to the Packers’ practice squad and brought him back on a futures contract only to cut him loose coming out of the preseason.
During his four-year college career at Purdue, Yancey caught 141 passes for 2,344 yards receiving (16.6 YPR) and 20 touchdowns for the Boilermakers. As a senior, Yancey finished in the top-10 in receptions yards and touchdowns while leading the league in yards per reception. He was voted second-team All-Big Ten in 2016.
