The Denver Broncos waived former Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Travis Fulgham on Tuesday. One day later, he already finds himself with a new (yet familiar) NFL home with the Green Bay Packers.

Many remember Fulgham’s electric season with the Eagles back in 2020, leading the team in receiving yards (albeit with only 539 yards). The young wideout burst on the season with 152 yards against the Pittsburgh Steelers in what was just his fifth game in the NFL. It seemed as though Travis Fulgham was set to become the Eagles’ next star wide receiver. Within six weeks, however, he had nearly fallen out of the offense completely.

After being released by Philadelphia in 2021, Fulgham was signed to the Miami Dolphins practice squad. He would be released on December 15th of the same year. Just two days later, Fulgham would sign with the Denver Broncos though he would only be activated for Week 17. This brings the story full-circle as Travis Fulgham found himself on the outs in Denver as well. That is until a familiar team came knocking.

Former Philadelphia Eagles’ WR Travis Fulgham has a new home in Green Bay.

No, not the Philadelphia Eagles. For the first time in far too long, the Birds have a complete receiver group. The team that came calling for Fulgham was none other than the team who rostered him for all of nine days in 2020, the Green Bay Packers.

After trading away Davante Adams to the Raiders this past offseason, the Packers found themselves in serious need. Yes, the team did add veteran Sammy Watkins and second-round pick Christian Watson; however, their receiving depth remains anything but ideal.

Next. Board the Reed Blankenship hype train ASAP. dark

Travis Fulgham may very well never play a game within Green Bay but what he has is a chance. A chance to remind teams of what he’s capable of. A chance to prove he’s an NFL receiver, and if he can do that, with Aaron Rodgers as his quarterback, Fulgham’s prime may yet be ahead of the soon-to-be 27-year-old.
