Packers sign two players to practice squad

Posted Oct 17, 2012


The Green Bay Packers signed WR Jeremy Ross and DE Drew Vanderlin to the practice squad. The transactions were announced Wednesday by Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson.

Ross, a 6-foot, 215-pound first-year player out of the University of California, spent the final 13 games of the 2011 season on the Colts’ practice squad. He was released by Indianapolis on Aug. 31, 2012. Ross entered the NFL as a non-drafted free agent with New England in July 2011.

Ross finished his career at Cal ranked No. 2 on the school’s all-time punt return list with a 15.2-yard average. He played in 43 games with 14 starts and caught 57 passes for 764 yards (13.4 avg.) and three TDs during his career. Ross will wear No. 10 with the Packers.

Vanderlin, a 6-foot-3, 288-pound rookie out of Michigan Tech, participated in the Packers’ rookie orientation camp on a tryout basis in May. He finished his collegiate career ranked No. 2 on Michigan Tech’s all-time sacks list with 20. Vanderlin twice earned first-team All-Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference honors and was named the team’s defensive lineman of the year as a junior and senior. He will wear No. 97 with the Packers.
