What does receiver Jared Abbrederis have to do to get on the field?
Have the best preseason of any Green Bay Packers receiver?
Gain the much-ballyhooed, but little understood Aaron Rodgers’ trust nod?
Earn praise from Fat Mike himself?
Actually, no. All three of those things will not be enough.
Jared Abbrederis will just not get on the field. Period.
Both Trevor Davis (12, up from five the week before) and Ty Montgomery (four, up from zero the week before) played more snaps in week 3. That came at a cost to Davante Adams, who had a season-low 25 snaps.
How many did Abbrederis have?
Adams’ snap count has — thankfully — decreased each of the first three weeks. Davis’ has gone up each week. Montgomery’s snap count has been all over the place, with a high in week 1.
Abbrederis? Like Adams, his snap count has gone down each week. The difference is Adams opened with 58 snaps. Abbrederis opened with 14. So it was much easier for Abbrederis to go from 14 to nothing. He had just six in week 2.
Some people would tell you the problem for Abbrederis is he plays the slot, which is Randall Cobb’s position. Well, McCarthy still manages to find ways to get Davis and Montgomery on the field and they’re built much like Cobb.
So we can only conclude that Jared Abbrederis must have crapped in McCarthy’s cereal at some point.
