Welcome to Houston Justin McCray OG

76Texan

Hall of Fame
Short arm (32" inch), better suited at G, where he got his career best PFF grade of 64 and change with the Packers in 2017.
But a couple of injuries since then muddles the picture.
Strictly a signing for depth.

Hall of Fame
Even back in 2017, he wasn't regarded as a keeper for the Packers.
2017 was an interesting, if not impossible situation, to be thrown into with the Packers. :

*************************************************************

On March 29, 2017, the Packers signed Justin McCray to a one-year deal. After joining the team, McCray knew he had an uphill battle to make the 53-man roster against younger and fresher talent waiting in the wings. Throughout training camp, McCray worked at both guard and center. As training camp led into the preseason, McCray fought hard to eventually earn a spot on the final roster.

As the 2017 season began, the Packers offensive line began to implode with injuries and McCray was thrown into the mix early and often on the line. In the week 4 game against the Bears, McCray was thrown into an unfamiliar spot to start at right tackle for an injured Bulaga. The very next week against the Cowboys, he would shift over for the start at left guard. Throughout the rest of the season, McCray would see starts and fill-in time for injured starters at left guard and right tackle.

When all was said and done at the end of the 2017 season, McCray would finish with eight starts on the season as well as finishing a few other games as a reserve as well. While he didn’t receive a very high grade from Pro Football Focus, he did show a lot of versatility in being able to fill in for holes all over the offensive line. Any young lineman with little experience in the trenches in the NFL would’ve struggled at times, but the experience that he gained in the starts during the 2017 campaign is priceless.
