New Orleans Breakers TE Sal Cannella Signs With Green Bay Packers

The USFL’s best tight end, Sal Cannella, has officially signed with the Green Bay Packers. This is no surprise, considering how impressive Cannella was for the New Orleans Breakers this season. He had a workout with the Packers this week, and now joins the 90 man roster heading into training camp.

Cannella was sensational, to say the least – and he’s been doing this for a while. Back in The Spring League, Sal was a dominant force. Then, he proceeded to lead all tight ends in the USFL, with 368 receiving yards and two touchdowns.

Not to mention, Cannella is also a skilled blocker, making him into a valuable asset for any organization. He made the USFL playoffs with the New Orleans Breakers in 2022 – proceeding to set a USFL record with 154 receiving yards in the semi-finals.

Without a doubt, Cannella is certainly an athlete who deserves this opportunity. He now gets to pursue his NFL dreams with the Packers, largely due to his USFL experience.
