Packers Work Out Former Giants TE Travis Beckum

The Packers have worked out former Giants TE Travis Beckum, ESPN.com's Rob Demosky reports. 

Beckum, a native of Milwaukee and graduate of the University of Wisconsin, hasn't appeared in a meaningful game since Super Bowl XLVII, a contest in which he tore his ACL. That injury caused Beckum to miss all of 2013, before he hitched a ride with the Saints this past preseason.

Since then, Beckum has also worked out for the Bears and Jaguars. With the Packers, he'll look to get a job as their third-stringer, a role they need to fill right now due to the wound Brandon Bostick suffered in Week 10.

Interesting since they just added Perillo from the practice squad. I'm guessing they worked him out just in case of another injury at tight end.
