Iowa State’s all-time leading receiver is on the move.

Allen Lazard has been signed by the Green Bay Packers off the Jacksonville Jaguars practice squad, according to a report by NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero. Lazard signed with the Jaguars as an undrafted free agent in the spring.

Lazard left Ames as the most decorated receiver in the history of Iowa State football as the school’s all-time leader in receptions, receiving yards and single-season touchdowns. He was a multiple-time All-Conference selection and was regarded as one of the top pass catchers in the country as a senior in Ames.
