The Green Bay Packers, at 4-8, have the slimmest of odds to make the 2022-23 playoffs. To say that this season has been a disappointment would be an understatement. Going into the 2022 season, both the Packers offense and defense were ranked in the top ten by various outlets. 12 weeks into the season many fans are now looking at the Packers 2023 draft pick. The defense, in particular, has been a major disappointment this off-season. Going into their week 13 match-up vs the Bears, Green Bay made a change at the position. Safety Johnathan Abram has been released by the Green Bay Packers.
Safety Johnathan Abram Released By Packers:
Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports that the Packers are going to waive Johnathan Abram. Abram joined the team earlier this month when Green Bay claimed him off of waivers from the Raiders. Abram was very limited in his time with Green Bay. He did not play against the Eagles last Sunday night and played just one defensive snap in two appearances with the Packers. He did, however, play 28 special teams snaps and made two tackles.
Abram was a Raiders’ first-round pick in 2019. He started 34 of 36 games during his time with the team. He has 257 tackles, three interceptions, and two fumble recoveries over his entire career. A contending team with some needed depth at the position should certainly take a flier on the veteran. Below is the official announcement of the move:
The #Packers are waiving safety Johnathan Abram, per source.
Abram contributed during his short stint in Green Bay, which now wants to look at its young guys. So for the second time in three weeks, the former #Raiders first-round pick hits waivers.
