The Green Bay Packers signed LB DQ Thomas to the practice squad and released WR Travis Fulgham from the practice squad. The transactions were announced Tuesday by General Manager Brian Gutekunst.
Thomas (6-2, 216) originally signed with the New York Jets as an undrafted free agent out of Middle Tennessee State on May 6, was released on Aug. 30 and then spent a week on the Jets' practice squad. He finished his college career as the school's all-time leader in tackles for a loss (53.0) and tied for No. 3 all-time in sacks (20.5). In his final season (2021), he was voted a permanent team captain and earned second-team All-Conference-USA recognition and Bahamas Bowl Defensive MVP honors. Thomas will wear No. 48 for the Packers.
