Practice Squad Picks

GM Ted Thompson announced the signing of 6 players to the Packers practice squad. Five of the players were in the 2005 training camp. Here are the players:
  • WR/KR Craig Bragg (6-1, 195, rookie, UCLA)
  • CB Patrick Dendy (6-0, 190, rookie, Rice)
  • CB Therrian Fontenot (5-11, 187, rookie, Fresno State)
  • FB Vonta Leach (6-0, 250, second year, East Carolina)
  • WR Chad Lucas (6-1, 201, first year, Alabama State)
  • LB Zac Woodfin (6-1, 234, rookie, Alabama-Birmingham)
The Packers have really liked Vonta Leach these last 2 years and, of all the players, he is the one they are probably most happy to have passed waivers and been able to re-sign. Bragg, who holds UCLA receiving records, showed flashes at times but ultimately was a victim of numbers at the receiving position.
