Filling out their practice squad, the Green Bay Packers have re-signed tight end Tony Donald, GM/Head Coach Mike Sherman announced Wednesday.
Donald, who had signed a reserve future contract January 7 and was activated from reserve January 28, subsequently spent the preseason on the Green Bay roster, posting 2 special teams tackles before being waived August 30 in the team's final roster reduction to the 53-man regular-season limit.
The Western (Colo.) State alumnus, 6-3 and 245 pounds, originally signed with the Houston Texans as an undrafted free agent, June 13, 2002. He later was waived August 26 and spent the remainder of the year out of football.
Donald, a 24-year-old Jacksonville, Fla., native, was a four-year starter and a three-time All-Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference selection at safety as a collegian, finishing his career with 258 tackles and 15 interceptions.
The tight end has been assigned jersey number 41.
