GREEN BAY, Wis. — Raymond Webber will attempt to convert from wide receiver to tight end after signing with the Green Bay Packers.

Undrafted out of Arkansas-Pine Bluff in 2011, Webber’s career as a wide receiver included brief stints with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New York Jets. Most recently, however, Webber had been out of the NFL, signing with the Canadian Football League’s Calgary Stampeders in 2013. Webber was cut by Calgary in June 2013.

Webber had significant production as a senior in 2010, recording 101 receptions for 1,429 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Webber is listed at 6-foot-2 and 237 pounds, making him the shortest and lightest of the Packers’ tight ends from the 2013 season.
