The Chargers will be just the second team that Bulaga has played for since coming into the league as a first-round pick of the Packers in 2010. Pressed into the starting lineup midway through that season, Bulaga helped Green Bay to a win in Super Bowl XLV.
Injuries were an issue for him, as he played in all 16 regular season games just three times in his 10-year career. But one of those came in 2019 when he played at a very high level despite dealing with a knee injury.
Bulaga’s departure leaves the Packers with just two players currently signed that were a part of that Super Bowl winning team — quarterback Aaron Rodgers and kicker Mason Crosby.
Wagner, a former All-Big Ten tackle at Wisconsin, was reportedly signed on a two-year deal worth $11 million. He’s expected to be Bulaga’s replacement at right tackle, though the team is likely to add some more bodies along the line whether in free agency or the draft.
