The Packers signed major help Wednesday
The Green Bay Packers addressed a serious need on Wednesday. The Packers suffered several injuries to starters against the Detroit Lions. The Packers were unable to make any major trades before the deadline. The 3-6 Packers are resigned to improving their roster through other means.
According to a report by Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network, the Packers have signed safety Johnathan Abram off of waivers. He had been with the Las Vegas Raiders.
The Packers had a need in the secondary after cornerback Eric Stokes went down with an injury against the Lions. Head coach Matt LaFleur said Monday that he was concerned most about that injury after he learned Rashan Gary would be gone for the season. Current Packers safety Darnell Savage has come under criticism in the Joe Barry’s defensive scheme.
Abram could bring major help the defense. He’s appeared in eight games for the Raiders this season. Abram has made 48 total tackles this season.
