With starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers sidelined for several weeks with a broken collarbone, the Packers signed quarterback Scott Tolzien to the active roster on Wednesday. As a result, the Packers also added Gillett, a wide receiver, to the practice squad.

A 2009 Clyde graduate, Gillett signed with the Packers on May 22 as an undrafted free agent, but was released on Aug. 26.

The 6-foot-1, 214-pound Gillett signed with the Packers after spending four seasons at Eastern Michigan University.

At Clyde, Gillett holds the single-season records for passing yards (2,733), rushing yards (1,689) and touchdowns scored (29). He also holds the career record for passing yards (5,500), touchdowns (104 total) and rushing yards (2,100), and holds the single-game record for touchdowns and passing yards.

In his three years as the starting quarterback, Clyde went 27-7, won two Sandusky Bay Conference titles and had back-to-back playoff berths.
