Packers Trying Out Five Players


The Green Bay Packers brought in five free agents for tryouts on Friday, according to Aaron Wilson.

The full list of players who tried out includes:

  1. LS Joe Fortunato
  2. LS Colin Holba
  3. TE Dax Raymond
  4. P Johnny Townsend
  5. K Cole Tracy

Raymond, 25, wound up going undrafted out of Utah State before signing a three-year, $1.755 million contract with the Bears.

Raymond was waived with an injury settlement coming out of the preseason and was later re-signed to the Bears’ practice squad. He eventually returned to Chicago on a futures contract for the 2020 season before being waived once again in April.

The Steelers signed Raymond to a contract in July before waiving him with an injury designation. He then reverted to injured reserve after clearing waivers and was released with an injury settlement. 

During his college career at Utah State, Raymond caught 72 passes for 873 yards receiving and three touchdowns over the course of 27 games.
