Former University of Wisconsin defensive end Conor Sheehy signed with the Green Bay Packers as an undrafted free agent.

The Milwaukee native started 33 of his 54 games with the Badgers, logging 95 tackles, 13.5 for loss, and six sacks during his career.

Sheehy received an invite to the East-West Shrine game this year, and a solid Pro Day at the McClain Center in March helped secure a post-draft free agent deal.

Sheehy took part in his first practice with the Packers on Friday during their rookie orientation camp. Former UW safety Joe Ferguson, who earned a tryout with Green Bay, also participated.

Ferguson played in 58 career games for the Badgers, mostly as a reserve. He did start five games as a senior in 2017, though, recording 17 tackles, four interceptions and two pass breakups.
