The Packers did make one move on trade deadline day. According to a release from the team, they’ve signed tight end Dax Raymond, an undrafted free agent out of Utah State who’s spent time with the Chicago Bears and Pittsburgh Steelers.

The 6-foot-5, 246-pound Raymond posted good but not great numbers at the 2019 NFL Combine, including a 4.73-second 40-yard dash, a 32-inch vertical leap, and a 4.39-second short shuttle time. According to his official Utah State bio, Raymond was a two-time third-team all-Mountain West performer and is the proud owner of a degree in sociology, His father, Ronn, ran track for Utah State.

Raymond was reasonably productive in college, catching 72 passes for 873 yards and three touchdowns over three seasons. He caught passes from Packers 2020 first-round pick Jordan Love during his first two seasons at Utah State.

To make room for Raymond, the Packers released tight end Nakia Griffin-Stewart.
