1. Travis Fulgham, WR
Perhaps the position that will be heavily followed heading into the 53-player cut-down deadline will be at wide receiver.
The team traded away Davante Adams to the Las Vegas Raiders, and watched Marquez Valdes-Scantling sign a three-year, $30 million contract with the Kansas City Chiefs. To address those absences, the Packers signed veteran Sammy Watkins and used three draft picks on North Dakota State’s Christian Watson, Nevada’s Romeo Doubs, and Nebraska’s Samori Toure.
While there are plenty of wide receiver options on the Packers, there are only so many spots on the 53-player roster. One veteran who could be on the outside looking in is Travis Fulgham.
Returning to the Packers for the second time in his career, Fulgham has shown to be successful at the NFL level. He was on the Philadelphia Eagles roster in 2020, where he caught 38-of-67 targets for 539 and four touchdowns in 13 games (eight starts). He, however, had short stints with the Miami Dolphins and Denver Broncos in 2021.
The Packers claimed Fulgham off waivers, and he participated in Green Bay’s preseason finale, logging one catch for 16 yards on two targets.
When it comes to the Packers, the wide receiver depth chart will be filled at the top by Randall Cobb, Allen Lazard, and Sammy Watkins. Doubs and Watson will follow them. Even though the Packers did make a late claim on Fulgham, it is entirely possible he does not make the Week 1 roster.
