Lazard signed with Green Bay on Dec. 18 saw his first NFL action during a Week 17 loss to the Lions, in which fellow wideouts Davante Adams and Equanimeous St. Brown did not suit up. The undrafted rookie made the most of his sole offensive snap, hauling in a seven-yard reception from backup quarterback DeShone Kizer in the fourth quarter. The 6-foot-4, 227-pound receiver will spent the offseason attempting to carve out a depth role.
Lazard was poached off the Jaguars' practice squad as the Packers bolster their depth at wide receiver with Randall Cobb still subject to the league's concussion protocol. Lazard went undrafted out of Iowa State in April despite a 6-foot-4, 227-pound frame, so he figures to be buried on the depth chart in Green Bay for the final two weeks of the regular season.
The Jaguars waived Lazard on Friday, Mike Kaye of FirstCoastNews.com reports.
Lazard was scooped up as a free agent after going undrafted. Although he had some hype at the time, he was ultimately unable to earn a role on the team's 53-man roster. The 6-foot-4, 227-pound receiver may see some interest on the wire due to his size.
