Dolegala had been at Packers minicamp trying out for the team and apparently impressed enough to earn a roster spot.

In a corresponding move, the Packers plan to waive DT Anthony Rush, per Rob Demovsky.  

Dolegala, 24, signed with the Bengals after going undrafted out of Central Connecticut State in 2019. He agreed to a three-year, $1.755 million contract, but was waived by Cincinnati coming out of the preseason in September of last year. 

The Patriots signed Dolegala to their practice squad soon after and spent the rest of the season on and off of the unit. New England waived Dolegala in April. 

During his four-year college career at Central Connecticut, Dolegala appeared in 44 games. He completed 57.6 percent of his passes and threw for 8,129 yards, 48 touchdowns, and 29 interceptions.

He has yet to appear in an NFL game. 

Rush, 24, initially signed with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent out of UAB in 2019. However, the Eagles waived Rush before the start of camp. 

Rush caught on with the Raiders but was again waived coming out of the preseason. From there, he re-signed to the Eagles’ active roster, but was waived again coming out of camp this year.

He had a brief stint on the Seahawks’ practice squad before catching on with the Bears. The Packers later claimed Rush off of waivers. 

In 2020, Rush appeared in five games for the Seahawks and Packers, recording six tackles and 0.5 sacks.
