The move comes after a severe shoulder injury to Aaron Rogers promoted Brett Hundley to the Packer’s starting QB, and Joe Callahan from the practice squad to the active roster as the back-up.
After a single season with the Virginia Tech Hokies Jerod Evans declared early for the NFL Draft, but was passed over during all seven rounds. He was eventually signed as an undrafted rookie free agent by the Philadelphia Eagles, but was later waived after being placed on injured reserve.
During the 2016-2017 season Evans lead the Hokies to an ACC Coastal Championship and Belk Bowl victory. Evans finished his time at Virginia Tech throwing for 3552 yards and 29 TDs. He ran for an additional 846 yards and 12 TDs.
Mr. Evans, we wish you the best of luck at your new opportunity with the NFL!
