Packers sign QB Jake Dolegala, TE Jace Sternberger suspended

The Green Bay Packers may not have the quarterback they want in minicamp but they’re compensating by adding more of them.

The Packers have signed Jake Dolegala after he tried out during the team’s minicamp, NFL Network reported Thursday, citing the QB’s agents.

Also Thursday, the NFL announced that Green Bay tight end Jace Sternberger has been suspended two games for violating the NFL Policy and Program on substances of abuse.

The signing gives the Packers five QBs on the depth chart — the absent Aaron Rodgers, Jordan Love, Blake Bortles, Kurt Benkert and Dolegala.

Dolegala spent time on the New England Patriots’ practice squad last season but was waived by the team on April 30. Dolegala spent the 2019 season with the Cincinnati Bengals but never appeared in a game.

Sternberger caught 12 passes for 114 yards and one touchdown in 12 games for the Packers last season. The Packers took Sternberger in the third round of the 2019 draft. Sternberger will be eligible to return to the active roster on Sept. 21. He’s allowed to participate in the team’s offseason program and preseason games.
