If Abbrederis isn’t claimed by another club, he’ll become a free agent and will be allowed to sign immediately. Conceivably, he could re-sign with the Packers, but only after a duration of three weeks plus the length of the injury settlement. According to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Abbrederis’ thigh contusion will take roughly two weeks to heal. At that point, he can begin auditioning for teams in an attempt to land a new contract.

Abbrederis, a 2014 fifth-round pick, was never able to garner much action as a member of Green Bay’s receiving corps. During his time with the Packers, the 25-year-old only appeared in 18 games, posting 10 receptions for 119 yards. As Jason Wilde of ESPN.com tweets, Abbrederis may have been held in higher regard by Aaron Rodgers and head coach Mike McCarthy than by general manager Ted Thompson and the rest of the Green Bay front office.

    Odd. Any Packers insiders know what happened?

    Not an insider, but my guess is it’s because he was injured and unable to play what seemed like 90% of the time.

    Ted Thompson is a senile piece of crap and needs to go

  4. TheMichigan

    He was a decent wideout 10 catches for 119 isn’t eye opening but it shows that he’s getting basically a first down per catch
