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.
