The Green Bay Packers have claimed WR Gerrard Sheppard off waivers from the Baltimore Ravens. The transaction was announced earlier this afternoon by Packers General Manager Ted Thompson.
Sheppard is a first-year player out of Towson, spending the entire 2013 season on the Ravens’ practice squad. He was originally signed by Baltimore as a rookie free agent on May 3, 2013.
Sheppard began his college career at the University of Connecticut, where he played in eight games over two seasons before transferring. In his final two seasons, he started nine of 23 games he played in for Towson. He had 52 catches for 584 yards and five touchdowns.
