Begelton was waived by the Packers on Tuesday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Analysis: Begelton put forth a strong effort during training camp, but there simply was not room for him on a roster that included five locks at his position. Begelton has been with the Packers since January of 2020, so there's a good chance he lands a spot on the team's practice squad.

Begelton was targeted four times and caught two passes for 15 yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Jets. He also returned two punts for 35 yards.
Analysis: Begelton impressed with a 28-yard punt return, but it's unlikely that moved the needle much in the competition for reserve receiver spots on the Packers' roster, and there are still as many as eight wideouts ahead of him on the depth chart.

Begelton signed a reserve/future contract with the Packers on Tuesday, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: The 27-year-old played two offensive snaps as he made his NFL debut this season, but he spent most of the season on the practice squad. Begelton will stick with the Packers for the start of the offseason program.

The Packers re-signed Begelton to the practice squad Thursday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Analysis: Fresh off making his NFL debut during Monday's win over the Falcons, in which he wasn't targeted, Begelton returns to Green Bay's practice squad. He'll remain with the team as an emergency depth option at wide receiver.

The Packers waived Begelton on Tuesday.
Analysis: Begelton made his NFL debut in Monday's win over the Falcons, logging two offensive snaps and two on special teams. The former CFL star didn't receive a target. If he clears waivers, the Packers will likely try to retain him on the practice squad in case their wide receivers suffer another slew of injuries.

Begelton was promoted to the Packers' active roster from the practice squad Monday.
Analysis: The 27-year-old will join the active roster ahead of Monday's matchup with the Falcons, as fellow WRs Allen Lazard (abdomen) is on injured reserve and Davante Adams (hamstring) isn't expected to play. Begelton could see some offensive snaps versus Atlanta since Marquez Valdes-Scantling likely will be the only available wideout who already has a catch this season. Darrius Shepherd and Malik Taylor will also be in the mix.

The Packers signed Begelton to the practice squad Sunday.
Analysis: The Packers decided to only keep five wideouts on the active roster, with Begelton and Darrius Shepherd﻿ joining the practice squad. A CFL All-Star in 2019, Begelton could get a shot to join the active roster later this season.

The Packers waived Begelton on Saturday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Analysis: Begelton was a CFL All-Star in 2019 and finished the season with 102 receptions for 1,444 yards and 10 touchdowns, and although he showed flashes in training camp, the 27-year-old wideout was let go. With no preseason film, it's likely he clears waivers, and the Packers will try to retain him on the practice squad.
