    The Green Bay Packers are making one roster transaction on Tuesday Bryan Bulaga Jersey , according to a report from Aaron Wilson that says the team is signing a player to the practice squad. That player is Brady Sheldon, a 6-foot-5 linebacker.Sheldon is in his second professional season, spending the entirety of 2017 with the Oakland Raiders organization. He signed with Oakland as an undrafted free agent in July of last year, then was released at final cuts. He came back to the team on their practice squad in November, eventually earning a late-season call-up to the active roster Mason Crosby Jersey , where he suited up in the final two games of the season.Sheldon then spent the offseason with the Raiders until being waived in June around the start of minicamp. At that point, the Cleveland Browns claimed him and he spent the first two months of the 2018 regular season on their practice squad before being released on October 30th.A product of Ferris State University in Michigan, Sheldon would seem to have an odd build for a linebacker, as he was listed at 6-foot-5 and 220 pounds on the Browns roster. However, Sheldon reportedly was working out at 236 pounds this summer David Bakhtiari Jersey , a noticeable jump in bulk from that listed weight. Even at that bigger size, he would seem to be a better candidate to play inside linebacker for the Packers than on the edge, the position he played in Oakland. His excellent speed and athleticism should help him in his continued search for an NFL career as well. At Central Michigan’s Pro Day in 2017, Sheldon reportedly ran a 4.53-second 40-yard dash (though he says it was a 4.47) with a 37-inch vertical and a 7.07-second time in the 3-cone drill. However, that workout took place with him weighing about 215 pounds due to a stomach bug that hit him before Pro Day.Like Packers rookie Oren Burks Ty Summers Green Bay Packers Jersey , Sheldon is a converted safety, and he described his transition to a 3-4 edge rush position as a rookie in an interview this summer with Hometown Life:Perhaps the Packers feel that he has the frame to add more weight and develop as a pass-rusher; otherwise he could be a candidate to help out on the inside or on special teams.UPDATE: The Packers announced Sheldon’s signing on Tuesday afternoon, in conjunction with a series of other roster moves including sending Geronimo Allison to injured reserve and releasing Jermaine Whitehead. When Matt LaFleur was hired as the new head coach of the Green Bay Packers, there was excitement yet also some trepidation concerning his offense in Tennessee this season.Now LaFleur has hired Nathaniel Hackett as his offensive coordinator and the same concerns have arisen over Hackett’s performance in Jacksonville after he was fired in November.Both LaFleur and Hackett had to deal with major injuries to their offenses: LaFleur with quarterback Marcus Mariota damaging nerves in his throwing arm and Hackett with a beat up offensive line plus being saddled with Blake Bortles at quarterback.The Packers are counting on both coaches’ experience before 2018 to carry them to success in Green Bay and it’s a good bet they can pull it off. The Jaguars’ offense actually got even worse after Hackett left plus he got an incredible amount of production out of Bortles in 2017 after Jacksonville nearly made Super Bowl LII. The path to Green Bay was also littered with a lot of mediocrity from the quarterback position with Hackett coaching players like Kyle Orton, EJ Manuel and Bortles. Not the most gifted group of guys. Hackett a hasn’t worked with a quarterback of Aaron Rodgers’ caliber. It’s like going from the outhouse to the penthouse and it will be interesting to see that relationship develop as Hackett Ty Summers Jersey 2019 , Rodgers and LaFleur are now joined at the hip to turn the offense around.If Rodgers wanted new ideas on offense, he’s got them.Now it’s up to Hackett (and LaFleur) to keep the quarterback on target and in line, especially if the team passes (no pun intended) on hiring a true quarterbacks coach.You can read more on the Packers’ new offensive coordinator and how the running game will be more center stage next season in today’s cheese curds.Nathaniel Hackett hire part of Matt LaFleur’s offensive process for Packers—PackersNews.comHackett won’t be calling the plays in Green Bay so his attention can be working with the quarterbacks and the offensive as a whole.
