Backup center was with Packers in training camp

The Green Bay Packers have signed C Garth Gerhart to the practice squad and released WR Reggie Dunn from the practice squad. The transactions were announced Thursday by Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson.

Gerhart, a 6-foot-1, 310-pound first-year player out of Arizona State, was on Green Bay’s practice squad for the final week of the 2012 postseason and remained with the Packers until being released in the final roster reduction at the conclusion of the preseason. He originally entered the league as a non-drafted free agent with the Cleveland Browns in May 2012 and spent the 2012 regular season on Cleveland’s practice squad. Gerhart will wear No. 72 for the Packers.

    A first-team All-Big Ten selection two years in a row at guard, Pat Elflein was asked to move to center in 2016. How did he do? He not only was named first-team all-conference again, but he was a consensus All-American and the Rimington Trophy winner as the nation’s top center in his first year full-time at the position.
