Former BYU WR Jonah Trinnaman Will Try Out For Green Bay Packers At Cornerback
Trinnaman was cut by the Arizona Cardinals two weeks after receiving an undrafted free agent contract.
Trinnaman has only played wide receiver in his collegiate career
Former BYU wide receiver Jonah Trinnaman is still trying to make it in the National Football League.
Trinnaman was signed by the Arizona Cardinals to an undrafted free agent contract immediately after the NFL Draft concluded in April. At the conclusion of Cardinals OTA’s, the Cards -who had a glaring opening at wide receiver- decided to cut Trinnaman.
Longtime NFL reporter Aaron Wilson reported that Trinnaman is going to be trying out with the New York Jets this week and the Green Bay Packers. The tryout with the Packers is notable because, in Green Bay, Trinnaman will be trying out as a cornerback.
Trinnaman never played cornerback in his collegiate career at Snow College and BYU. But sources close to the program have suggested that if Trinnaman were to make it in the NFL, it will have to be at cornerback.
When you have 4.3-speed and a historic 12-foot broad jump, teams are going to be interested in trying Trinnaman out. But if he doesn’t get a new deal with one of these teams, it could signal the end of Trinnaman’s NFL chances. Hopefully, he can make it and find a way to stick in the league.
Trinnaman’s old teammate at BYU during his junior season, Colby Pearson, is a wide receiver for the Packers. Pearson was a member of the Packers practice squad last season and was signed to a free agent contract with Green Bay this past January.
