DETROIT, Michigan — Former Green Bay Packers and Wisconsin Badgers wide receiver Jared Abbrederis has been signed by the Detroit Lions.

Abbrederis shared the below messages on Twitter on Monday, January 9th:

The Detroit Lions said in a news released posted to their website they’ve signed the following players to the Reserve/Future List:

  • WR Jared Abbrederis (Wisconsin)
  • TE Kennard Backman (Alabama-Birmingham)
  • RB Mike James (Miami (Fla.)

Abbrederis suffered a number of injuries during his time with the Packers, and the two agreed to an injury settlement.
