Former UM Tight End Actived By Packers
Former UMaine tight end Justin Perillo may get a chance to do the Lambeau Leap today. He has been signed to the active roster by the Green Bay Packers for today's game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Perillo signed with the Pack as a non-drafted free agent back in May and has been on the Green Bay practice squad all season.
A year ago, Perillo was catching passes for the Maine Black Bears. In fact, he caught 128 passes and scored 15 touchdowns in his career in Orono.
He gets the call-up today because Packer tight end Brandon Bostick is out with a hip injury.
The Packers host the Eagles at Lambeau Field in a 4:30pm game today.
