The Green Bay Packers have claimed TE Eli Wolf off of waivers from the Indianapolis Colts and released WR Chris Blair. General Manager Brian Gutekunst announced the transactions Thursday.
Wolf (6-4, 238) was originally signed by the Baltimore Ravens as an undrafted free agent out of the University of Georgia in 2020. He spent his rookie season on the Ravens' practice squad and then was released during the 2021 training camp. Wolf was signed to the practice squad of the Indianapolis Colts on Oct. 26, where he spent the rest of the season. He spent four years (2015-18) at the University of Tennessee before playing one season for the Bulldogs (2019) as a graduate transfer. Wolf played in 14 games with two starts for Georgia and was named the co-winner of the Offensive Newcomer of the Year at the team's post-season awards gala. He will wear No. 48 for the Packers.
Blair spent the entire 2021 regular season on the Packers' practice squad.
