Packers Release Jake Schum

The Packers have released punter Jake Schum and signed undrafted free agent wide receiver Colby Pearson, according to a team announcement.

Jake Schum

The 2016 campaign was the only one in Green Bay for Schum, who entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Browns in 2012 but didn’t see regular-season action until 2015 with the Buccaneers.

Schum, 28, joined the Packers last August via waivers, and he went on to appear in all 16 of their regular-season games and finish 27th in both yards per punt and punts inside the 20, and 24th in net average. All told, Football Outsiders gave the Packers’ special teams unit roughly league-average grades last year in the punting department. That evidently didn’t suffice for Green Bay, whose lone punter is undrafted rookie Justin Vogel, formerly with Miami.

The 6-foot, 210-pound Pearson racked up 76 catches and eight touchdowns at BYU, where he appeared in 30 games from 2014-16. He totaled career highs in receptions (38), yards (384) and scores (four) last season.
