进攻边锋贾里德·维德海尔, who filled in for Indianapolis Colts left tackle Anthony Castonzo during the team’s AFC Wild Card matchup against the Buffalo Bills, will suit up for the 绿湾包装工 in their NFC Divisional Round showdown with the 洛杉矶公羊队.
Veldheer is expected to play a vital for the Packers, who will be without Pro Bowl left tackle David Bakhtiari after he suffered a torn ACL late in the year.
根据ESPN, Veldheer will be the first player in league history to play for two teams in the same postseason. The only reason Veldheer is allowed to sign with the Packers is because he was on the Colts’ practice squad.
COVID-19 practice-squad rules are the only reason this was made possible.
Since making his NFL debut in 2010, Veldheer has played in 121 games for five different teams, including the Raiders, 亚利桑那红雀队, 丹佛野马队, and the Colts. Veldheer, who is listed at 6-foot-8, 321 磅, retired following an eight-day stint with the New England Patriots last season. He ended up playing with the Packers a few months later for a short stretch, which lasted four games, playoffs included.
在九月, he retired despite a contract offer from the Dallas Cowboys. 然而, his second retirement lasted only three months after the Colts brought him on the team in December.
