Will Abby Clear Waivers?

Tom Silverstein is reporting that the Packers have released Jared Abbrederis. GPN held a poll and the hundreds of respondents came to a deadlock on what they thought would happen to Abby. While many thought Jared Abbrederis would make the team, that may not be the reality soon. If Silverstein’s report is correct, Jared Abbrederis’ time with the Packers is in jeopardy but he could still end up with the team on the practice squad if he clears waivers. But here are the numbers from the poll:

47% of respondents thought that Abby would make the team and 47% percent thought that he would end up on the practice squad. It was my guess that the Packers would risk him clearing waivers and hope to get him on the PS. So at this point, just about everybody in Packernation is probably hoping for that exact outcome. For my part, I hope they are right because I think Abbrederis might survive the practice squad and have another chance at the roster.

Either way, this is a significant blow to Jared’s chances with the Packers but all is not lost. My worst fear is that he turns out to be a world-beater on another team.
