Former Ravens wide receiver Gerrard Sheppard is working out for the Washington Redskins today, according to a league source.
The former Towson and McDonogh shandout was claimed off waivers earlier this year by the Green Bay Packers after being cut by the Ravens, but he was subsequently released.
Sheppard spent last season on the Ravens' practice squad.
He caught 52 passes for 584 yards and five touchdowns in two seasons at Towson after transferring from Connecticut.
In his lone season of football at McDonogh, Sheppard was named all-state as he caught 67 passes for 897 yards and 11 touchdowns as a senior. He was an All-Metro basketball player at McDonogh, scoring 1,400 career points.
