A high-level Canadian Football League performer, Begelton is getting his first crack at NFL action tonight, given the pandemic-reduced training camp meant no preseason games. Adding the 6-foot, 200-pound Begelton to the active roster gives the Packers four healthy receivers this evening.
Harris was originally signed by the New England Patriots as a free agent after going undrafted this spring. The Patriots guaranteed $140,000 of his 2020 salary, but he was released on September 5. He’s a bit undersized and more limited as an athlete than his “Scoota” nickname might imply, but tackled well at Arkansas and could fill a B.J. Goodson/Antonio Morrison-style role for the Packers.
Winn is making his second trip to the active roster, having been elevated for the Saints game last week. Even if he’s a limited player in a limited role, Winn’s comeback story is nothing short of remarkable: after a series of season-ending injuries, Winn’s now playing in just his second NFL game since 2016. He played six snaps and batted down a pass for the Packers last week.
