San Antonio Brahmas

Last but not least, the San Antonio Brahmas have three current players on their roster who were with the Packers at some point, including TE Alize Mack, OLB Delontae Scott, and OL Jordan McCray.

Mack signed with the Packers on February 7, 2022. He then spent the entire offseason and training camp with the Packers before being waived with an injury designation on August 30, 2022. A few days later, Mack was released off injury reserve.

Scott signed with the Green Bay Packers as an undrafted free agent out of SMU following the 2020 NFL Draft. Although Scott was waived in early September 2020, he was signed to the team’s practice squad the following day. After signing a futures contract with the team in January 2021, Scott was released during training camp in 2021. He then had stints with the Steelers and Panthers before joining the XFL.

Meanwhile, offensive lineman Jordan McCray signed with the team in 2014 as an undrafted free agent out of UCF. McCray was released from the team during the final cuts of training camp later in the year.

Since his release from the Packers, McCray has gone on to play for ten more teams across the NFL, Arena Football League, the Alliance of American Football, the National Arena League, the USFL, and the XFL.

On the administrative side, the Brahmas’ director of player personnel Will Lewis started his career as an executive as a scout with the Packers in 1997. The following year, he served as the Packers’ pro personnel assistant before joining the Seattle Seahawks front office.
