Chiefs released/waived OT Derek Sherrod, DE Mike Catapano, S Sanders Commings, LB Ja’Gared Davis, DT Hebron Fangupo, C Garrett Frye, DL David Irving, LB James-Michael Johnson, WR Tello Luckett, C Daniel Munyer, DB Deji Olatoye, OG Jarrod Pughsley, RB Darrin Reaves, CB Kevin Short and TE Ryan Taylor.
The Chiefs were the first team to offer 2011 first-rounder Sherrod a second chance after he was waived by the Packers last year, but he didn't make enough of an impression this summer. He was never the same after suffering a brutal leg break late in his rookie season. Sat, Sep 5, 2015 05:35:00 PM

Chiefs signed OT Derek Sherrod, DE Jerel Worthy and RB Spencer Ware to reserve/future contracts.

The Chiefs are loading up on ex-Packers draft picks. Worthy was Green Bay's second-round selection in 2012, while Sherrod was the No. 32 overall pick of the 2011 draft. His career was derailed by a severe leg injury suffered late in his rookie year. Sherrod was on the shelf for 2012-13. He's a no-risk, high-reward lotto card for Andy Reid's team. Chiefs GM John Dorsey was a member of the Packers' front office when both Worthy and Sherrod were drafted.

Titans worked out free agent OT Derek Sherrod.

It's Sherrod's first-known workout since he was waived by the Packers last week. The former first-rounder's draft pedigree should earn him some looks, but there's reason to believe he'll never be a contributing NFLer following his catastrophic 2011 leg injury.

Packers waived OT Derek Sherrod.

Sherrod, the 32nd overall pick in the 2011 draft out of Mississippi State, appeared in 20 games, making one start for the Packers. He suffered a catastrophic leg injury in Week 15 of the 2011 season and ended up missing about two calendar years of action. Sherrod hasn't been the same. He surrendered three sacks, three hurries, and two quarterback hits across 140 snaps this season.

Packers OT Derek Sherrod spent the entire offseason program at right tackle.

The Packers want the walk-year lineman to focus on one position after being limited to 13 appearances through his first three NFL seasons. OL coach James Campen was impressed with Sherrod's offseason. "The kid looks terrific," Campen said. "The next step for him is to get him into the daily grind, put the pads on and go pound it." Sherrod is not in the mix for a starting job.

The Packers will not exercise 2011 first-round pick Derek Sherrod's fifth-year option.

The option would've cost Green Bay $7.438 million, so it's a no-brainer move after Sherrod failed to earn a single start his first three NFL seasons. Finally healthy since his catastrophic 2011 leg injury, Sherrod will compete for playing time in training camp, ideally winning the "swing" tackle job behind LT David Bakhtiari and RT Bryan Bulaga. Sherrod turned 25 late last month.

Derek Sherrod is expected to compete for the Packers' starting left tackle job.

A 2011 first-round pick, Sherrod is healthy for seemingly the first time in his NFL career after spending the last two years recovering from a compound leg fracture. The Packers aren't necessarily committed to David Bakhtiari as their long-term left tackle, so Sherrod will be given an opportunity in training camp. Bryan Bulaga (ACL surgery) is expected to man right tackle.

Packers OT Derek Sherrod is entering his first full, healthy offseason as an NFL player.

Sherrod finally recovered from his 2011 compound leg fracture enough to contribute on special teams down the 2013 stretch. In an ideal scenario, Sherrod would step up as Green Bay's No. 6 offensive lineman, capably backing up both tackle and guard spots. Sherrod was the 32nd overall pick in the 2011 draft.
Fri, Jan 10, 2014 12:26:00 PM

Packers OT Derek Sherrod was active Sunday for the first time since his catastrophic 2011 leg injury.

Sherrod didn't get any snaps on offense, merely being used as a blocker on place kicks. Still, it's a step in right direction as the former first-round pick slowly makes his way back. The banged-up Packers could certainly use him.
Mon, Nov 18, 2013 11:27:00 AM

Packers activated OT Derek Sherrod (leg) from the reserve/PUP list.

The No. 32 overall pick of the 2011 draft, Sherrod last appeared in a game on Dec. 18, 2011, where he suffered a severe leg break. Sherrod underwent surgery in the offseason after suffering a setback. He'll now provide depth for a team that's been getting some of the league's worst tackle play. Sherrod is unlikely to immediately push for a starting job after so much time away, and may not even be active for Week 10.
Tue, Nov 5, 2013 05:27:00 PM

Packers OT Derek Sherrod (leg, reserve/PUP) is practicing Wednesday.

Sherrod is still working his way back from a broken right tibia and fibula in December of 2011. It's a good sign that he was able to practice when first eligible, but he's doubtful to make an impact this season. Sherrod could potentially be an option at left tackle over struggling rookie LT David Bakhtiari. The Packers have three weeks to decide whether to add him to their active roster.

Packers placed OT Derek Sherrod (leg) on reserve/PUP.

Sherrod broke his right tibia and fibula in December of 2011 and still isn't healed. He didn't play a single snap last year and will miss at least the first six games of this year. The failure of Sherrod, a 2011 first-round pick, is part of the reason Aaron Rodgers was sacked a league-high 51 times in 2012.
Tue, Aug 27, 2013 05:42:00 PM

The Packers have taken a "hush-hush" position on OT Derek Sherrod's (tibia, fibula) recovery.

Sherrod has spent camp on the PUP list, while his absence is now at the 20-month mark. Sherrod's family revealed to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel that he underwent an additional surgery in the offseason. "When they tried to put him out there, they noticed that he couldn't put the weight on his leg," Sherrod's brother said. "Then they had to do MRIs and scans to find out why his leg was shaking uncontrollably. They discovered that he had an ankle problem. ... All of last year was wasted." It wouldn't be surprising if Sherrod spent another year stowed away on PUP. The 2011 first-rounder's career is at a crossroads.
Fri, Aug 23, 2013 08:41:00 AM

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said OT Derek Sherrod (tibia, fibula) is "much further along" than where he was during OTAs and could be "close" to returning to practice.

Sherrod wasn't able to participate in any offseason workouts and has still yet to receive full medical clearance. His ability to return from a serious leg injury remains a concern, but he could eventually push RT Marshall Newhouse for a starting job once healthy.
Fri, Jul 26, 2013 12:17:00 PM

Packers placed OT Derek Sherrod (tibia, fibula) on active/PUP.

The 2011 first-rounder did not participate in any offseason drills and still hasn't been medically cleared. At this point, the Packers can't take Sherrod seriously as a right tackle competitor. Don Barclay may be the current favorite.
