Schroeder to retire as Packer; tight end signed

The Green Bay Packers have signed tight end Evan Moore, an undrafted free agent from Stanford.

He caught 103 passes in four years at college, with 1,555 yards and 12 touchdowns.

Meanwhile, former receiver Bill Schroeder signed a one-day contract and then retired, so he could bow out as a Packer.

Schroeder is a native of Sheboygan who played his college ball at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. He played eight seasons in the NFL and his first five were in Green Bay.

Schroeder caught 20 touchdowns for the Packers from 1997-2001 with 225 total receptions for 3,435 yards. He also played two years in Detroit and one in Tampa Bay where he retired in 2004.
