Notes:

  • The initial roster consists of 25 offensive players, 25 defensive players, and three specialists.
  • The Packers kept five running backs total, including one fullback, as all three draft picks at the position made it.
  • The 10 offensive linemen are the most the Packers have kept at that position since 2010, when they also kept 10.
  • The Packers kept only two quarterbacks for the first time since 2013.
  • Two undrafted rookies, CB Lenzy Pipkins and P Justin Vogel, made the roster. At least one undrafted rookie has made the roster every year of the Ted Thompson era, dating back to 2005.
  • Starting the season on PUP, LB Vince Biegel and CB Demetri Goodson will not be eligible to practice for at least six weeks. After six weeks, a three-week window begins during which they can begin practicing and be placed on the active roster at any time. Once a player practices for the first time, another three-week window opens during which he must be placed on the active roster or be lost for the season.
  • WR Geronimo Allison is suspended for Week 1. He is eligible to return to the active roster after the first game, but a corresponding roster move would be required if the Packers are at the 53-player limit.
  • This roster isn't necessarily final.  Teams can begin signing players to their practice squads on Sunday afternoon, after the waiver-claim period has expired.
