What did we learn from the Green Bay Packers’ second joint practice with the New Orleans Saints?
As we move closer to the second preseason game, the Green Bay Packers again hosted the New Orleans Saints for joint practices on Wednesday.
The first day of joint practices was a good one for the Packers’ defense, including players like rookie Kingsley Enagbare.
Who would stand out at practice on Wednesday?
Kobe Jones continues to make case for 53-man roster spot
Edge rusher Kobe Jones is making a case for a 53-man roster spot.
Jones has been impressive of late, and that continued during Wednesday’s practice. According to Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette, Jones had another sack against the Saints at practice, one which Rashan Gary came over to celebrate with him.
Mike McCarthy would call this “stacking success”. Jones impressed in the preseason opener last week, making five tackles, one tackle for loss, one sack, and one quarterback hit.
The competition is wide open at edge rusher behind starters Gary and Preston Smith.
Rookie Kingsley Enagbare has been very impressive this week, and we’ve also seen some great plays made by Jones.
If the Packers had to trim their roster to 53 players today, there’s a good chance Jones would make the team. If he can keep “stacking success”, a roster spot will be his.
