The former-first round pick was waived by the team on Monday, ending a disappointing three-and-a-half year stay in Green Bay. Sherrod appeared in 20 games, including one start in Week 2 against the New York Jets. He struggled on the primetime stage in Week 1, when he was beaten for two costly sacks in a season-opening loss to the Seattle Seahawks.
The 32nd overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, Sherrod struggled to come back from a compound fracture of his leg that sidelined him all of the 2012 season. Green Bay had spoken optimistically about the 25-year-old this summer, but also made the no-brainer decision not to pick up the final-year option of his rookie contract.
ESPN.com reported that Sherrod played 28.1 percent of Green Bay's offensive snaps this season. He could find work elsewhere for a team in need of O-line depth.
