GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The Packers tight end room will return at least one familiar face in 2019:

The 24-year-old tight end played in all 16 games (starting one) in 2018 -- his first in the NFL. He caught four passes on six receptions for one touchdown and 77 yards. Tonyan was signed by the Lions in 2017 as an undrafted free agent out of Indiana State. He was released before the 2017 season began and joined the Packers' practice squad late that year. He joined the active roster in 2018.
