Sheehy, 22, wound up signing on with the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of Wisconsin back in 2018. He agreed to a three-year, $1.71 million contract with the Packers, but was waived coming out of the preseason.
Sheehy sat out the entire 2018 season after clearing waivers.
During his college career at Wisconsin, Sheehy recorded 94 tackles, six sacks, a forced fumble and two pass defenses over the course of four seasons and 40 games.
