Packers Claim CB Pellerin off Waivers

Packers Claim CB Pellerin off Waivers

Green Bay Packers GM Ted Thompson continues to wheel and deal with his 90-man roster.

According to Bill Huber of the Packer Report, Green Bay claimed cornerback Micah Pellerin off waivers Friday.

 

The Indianapolis Colts signed Pellerin as undrafted free agent shortly after the draft. He was waived Thursday to make room for Korey Lindsay on the Colts' 90-man roster.

The Packers are currently at their own roster capacity, so there is likely to be a cut associated with this move.

Pellerin intercepted seven passes during three years at the University of Hampton. In 2011, Pellerin intercepted four passes and broke up 15 others as he was named a first-team All-MEAC selection.

According to Dane Brugler of CBS Sports, Pellerin flashed during the East-West Shrine Game in the lead up to the 2012 NFL draft.

Another cornerback from the FCS level who has flashed is Hampton's Micah Pellerin. Like Josh Norman, he has a tall, lean frame (6 feet, 195 pounds), but not as much bulk. Pellerin struggled a bit with his footwork in coverage drills, but he's decisive in his movements with a smooth backpedal, getting to top speed quickly. He played with confidence on the field and didn't back down or look tentative against Big Ten receivers A.J. Jenkins and B.J. Cunningham.

We'll have more information on the eventual roster cut as it becomes available.

UPDATE: The Packers waived receiver Marcus Rivers to make room for Pellerin.
