Considering how things have gone for receiver Jared Abbrederis this year, this was probably inevitable.
He had a better training camp than any other receiver. He was healthy for the first time ever to start a season. Then the season began and Abbrederis was forgotten, getting only 24 total snaps until the Packers put him on injured reserve last week.
When they did so, we knew Abbrederis didn’t really have a season-ending injury. And now, the Packers have given Abbrederis an injury settlement and released him.
It’s been a pretty maddening couple years for Abbrederis with the Packers, probably both for himself and for fans. They guy earned praise from Aaron Rodgers, Mike McCarthy and then for whatever reason, was never afforded any playing time.
He had just one reception for eight yards this season and finishes his Packers’ career with 10 for 119.
It’s one thing if the guy didn’t do anything when he was on the field, but Abbrederis showed ability and production when he was given an opportunity.
Thus concludes another disappointing personnel journey with your Green Bay Packers.
