Despite being reported in the immediate aftermath of the NFL Draft that the Green Bay Packers had signed offensive lineman John Fullington, it wasn't made official until Tuesday when the Washington State product appeared on the league's transaction wire.
Perhaps the delay was because Fullington arrived in town later than the other prospects and took an extra day to pass a physical, but that's merely speculation.
Fullington played both tackle and guard and started 42 games at Washington State, the second-most in school history.
After this most recent transaction, the Packers have currently filled 88 of 90 possible roster spots, perhaps leaving open two spots open to tryout players like they traditionally do each year.
The Packers could potentially also sign some of their own free agents like tight end Jermichael Finley or defensive lineman Ryan Pickett and Johnny Jolly or any free agent for that matter.
According to Wes Hodkiewicz of the Green Bay Press-Gazette, the Packers have also failed Mississippi State defensive lineman Denico Autry on his physical, meaning the team will not sign him to a contract. It was previous reported the Packers would sign Autry.
