By our count, the Green Bay Packers’ 90-man roster currently sits at 87 players. That number covers all the players currently under contract, including the 15 undrafted free agents who signed with the team last week, as well as the team’s five draft picks who have not yet signed their rookie deals.
That leaves the Packers with three open roster spots to fill, and we expect that they will do so with rookie free agents who attended the team’s rookie orientation camp last Friday and Saturday. Today we learned of the first name to earn a contract out of camp.
According to Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post, the Packers are signing Josh Letuligasenoa. The edge rusher attended the rookie camp on a tryout basis and will now join the 90-man roster.
At Cal Poly, Letuligasenoa played primarily defensive end and “rush linebacker”, essentially a hybrid edge rusher position. That matches nicely with the position he would likely play in Green Bay.
Letuligasenoa worked out at Cal Poly’s Pro Day on March 27th, where he measured in at 6’1” and 252 pounds, according to NFLdraftscout.com. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.90 seconds, according to a press release from the school, and also posted a 4.34-second time in the short shuttle. As a senior, he recorded 3 sacks and 9 tackles for loss.
Stay tuned to find out how the Packers fill their other two roster spots.
