2. Ty Summers, LB
The Packers have long needed linebacker help. They received an instant solution last year when they brought in De’Vondre Campbell, and rewarded his great play with a multi-year contract. Then, in the first-round of the NFL Draft, they used one of their selections on Georgia Bulldogs linebacker Quay Walker.
There are only so many inside linebacker spots on the roster. Ty Summers could be a cut candidate.
Summers was selected in the seventh-round of the 2019 draft by Green Bay. While he did log some defensive snaps in his previous three years with the team, he played 908 snaps on special teams with the team.
In terms of defensive stats, Summers recorded 52 combined tackles and one pass defended.
Looking at the Packers’ depth chart, Summers is listed as a third-string option behind Krys Barnes and 2021 sixth-round pick Isaiah McDuffie. Even with his experience on special teams, Summers may be the odd man out.
