The Green Bay Packers have been busy in terms of roster construction this week; far more busy than in a typical mid-season week. First, it was tight end Ryan Taylor's release, followed by wideout Kevin Dorsey's subsequent promotion. After that and in light of Jumal Rolle's recent departure to Houston, the Packers had two practice squad openings, one of which was filled by the signing of defensive end Joe Kruger on Tuesday.
Finally, the Packers' roster is back to 53 active men and 10 practice squad players, as the team announced today that guard Jordan McCray was signed to the squad. McCray should be a familiar name, since he was one of the team's early undrafted free agent signings and was with the Packers all the way down to the final cut-down day at the end of the preseason.
McCray is listed at 6-foot-3 and 322 pounds and played his college ball at Central Florida. According to Pro Football Focus, McCray played 88 snaps during the four preseason games, allowing five quarterback pressures including two sacks. Most of that action came in the second half of the Packers' final preseason game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
McCray is now one of three offensive linemen on the practice squad, joining tackle Jeremy Vujnovich and fellow guard Josh Walker.
