The Green Bay Packers have re-signed tight end Tony Donald to the team's practice squad, GM/Head Coach Mike Sherman announced Wednesday.
It is the third tour of duty in Green Bay for the 6-3, 245-pound Western State (Colo.) alumnus, initially signed as a free agent Jan. 7, 2003. He spent training camp and the preseason with the Packers, recording a pair of special teams tackles before being placed on waivers in the team's final roster reduction for the regular season Aug. 30.
The 24-year-old Jacksonville, Fla., native subsequently was signed to the practice squad Sept. 17 and released Sept. 23.
A four-year starter and a three-time All-Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference selection at safety as a collegian, Donald originally was signed by the Houston Texans as an undrafted free agent June 13, 2002. Waived during training camp, he spent the remainder of the year out of football.
Donald has been assigned jersey No. 41.
