The Green Bay Packers added some tight end depth this Monday afternoon. The NFC North franchise has claimed tight end Nate Becker, who was waived by the Carolina Panthers, off waivers today. 

Becker was an undrafted free agent out of Miami (OH) back in 2019. He spent some time with the Buffalo Bills at Carolina Panthers. At 6-foot-5, 264 pounds, Becker excels in run blocking. 

The Packers claimed Becker off of waivers from the Panthers this Monday afternoon. 

"The Packers have claimed TE Nate Becker off of waivers from the Panthers," wrote Field Yates.

Nate Becker joins a Packers tight end room that features Robert Tonyan, Josiah Deguara, Marcedes Lewis and Tyler Davis. 

The Packers, meanwhile, compete in the second of three preseason games this Friday night vs. the New Orleans Saints.
