NFL: German Kicker Dominik Eberle signs at Green Bay Packers
The German Kicker Dominik Eberle has signed at the Green Bay Packers. That announced the team from Wisconsin on Tuesday.
"It's unbelievable that I can now be part of such a traditional team," Eberle said to Sport1. "I'm looking forward to becoming a cheesehead and live in Green Bay, I'm looking forward to the first game, on the preseasone, training camp. I will give everything and then let's see what comes out."
However, Eberles are opportunities to actually make the leap in the 53-player squad at the start of the season 2022, not too well. His main competitor is Mason Crosby, who has been one of the best kickers of the NFL since 2007 and almost belongs to the inventory in Green Bay.
It is not uncommon to commit to the offseason camps and the training camp spare players, as a maximum of 90 players are allowed to stand in the squad until the season preparation.
Eberle was a Undrafted Rookie from Utah State, who spent his complete first season 2020 on the Practice Squad of Las Vegas Raiders. In 2021 he then landed at the Carolina Panthers and Houston Texans on the Practice Squad and came for Houston even to use as Corona Replacement in week 16 against the Los Angeles Chargers.
