According to NFL Reporter Aaron Wilson, the Green Bay Packers worked out two Canadian Football League players on the team’s off day: linebacker Josh Woods and defensive back Reggie Stubblefield. Both players are young starters who are receiving interest around the NFL.
Woods, a 25-year-old off-ball linebacker, has been with the BC Lions since 2021. Over the last two years, he’s recorded 68 defensive tackles and 21 special teams tackles over 35 games. Recently, he’s worked out with both the Denver Broncos and New England Patriots.
Stubblefield very well could be the bigger prize of the two. The 25-year-old rookie was the Grey Cup champion Montreal Alouettes’ Most Outstanding Rookie Award nominee last season. The Prairie View A&M and Kansas State product played in 13 games in 2023, recording 38 defensive tackles, three special teams tackles, two sacks and two interceptions.
Last year, when Stubblefield was considered a possible NFL draft prospect, he was considered a cornerback.
Should either of these players sign a contract with the Packers, it will likely come after the team has been eliminated from the postseason. In all likelihood, the player(s) would sign a reserve/futures contract with Green Bay — which would put the player(s) on similar footing as a practice squad player.
