Receiver Max McCaffrey has bounced around the league since the Green Bay Packers released him. He’s now back with the Packers as a member of their practice squad.
Interestingly, the team released veteran offensive lineman Don Barclay from injured reserve on Tuesday as well.
#Packers have signed WR Max McCaffrey to the practice squad and released veteran OL Don Barclay from injured reserve. That's…odd.
The Packers offensive line hasn’t been a particular strength this year, largely because of injury. Barclay injured his ankle early in training camp. The Packers put him on IR when they signed linebacker Ahmad Brooks.
Many thought Barclay would eventually be designated for return. However, apparently the Packers like enough of what they see of their young backups.
As for McCaffrey, he spent a stint on the New Orleans Saints practice squad before being signed to the Jacksonville Jaguars’ active roster.
