Max McCaffrey is Getting His Shot

If you’re still ticked off about some of the players the Green Bay Packers did or did not keep during roster cuts — we know you’re out there — this should please you.

Receiver Max McCaffrey, who had been signed to the New Orleans Saints practice squad, is getting his shot. McCaffrey was plucked by the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Jaguars are obviously looking for some depth after Allen Robinson was lost for the season with a torn ACL, on Sunday.

McCaffrey played well for the Packers during the preseason, but there was a logjam at receiver in Green Bay it was going to be tough to crack. The team initially only kept five receivers, but they will have six this week as Geronimo Allison returns from a one-game suspension.

In addition to McCaffrey, the team also released both receivers they drafted this year — DeAngelo Yancey (fifth round) and Malachi Dupre (seventh). Yancey was brought back on the practice squad.

McCaffrey was originally an undrafted free agent signed by Oakland. He ended up on the Packers practice squad in 2016.
