The Green Bay Packers have moved on from former first round pick in 2011, Derek Sherrod and activated J. C. Tretter from injured reserve/ designated to return list.
Sherrod was drafted with much excitement was expected to protect Aaron Rodgers’ blind side for the next decade, but it didn’t pan out that way. Ever since Sherrod broke his leg in his rookie year, he hasn’t looked like the same player he was in college at Mississippi State. The Packers now don’t have a true backup tackle on the 53-man roster.
J. C. Tretter being activated from the injured reserve/ designated to return list gives the Packers a much better option to backup all of the positions on the offensive line. He can play center, guard, and even tackle if he is called upon. He still hasn’t played a single regular season snap in the NFL but the coaches seem to have all of the trust in the world in him.
With the Packers moving on from Derek Sherrod today, only 5 out of 18 players drafted in 2011 and 2012 remain on the team.——————
