Packers sign WR Max McCaffrey to practice squad

Posted Oct 24, 2017

T/G Don Barclay released from injured reserve


The Green Bay Packers have signed WR Max McCaffrey to the practice squad and released T/G Don Barclay from injured reserve. The transactions were announced Tuesday by Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson.

McCaffrey, a 6-foot-2, 200-pound first-year player, was originally signed as an undrafted rookie by the Oakland Raiders out of Duke on May 10, 2016, but was released on Aug. 29, 2016. He was signed to the Packers’ practice squad on Dec. 20, 2016, and then to the active roster on Jan. 21, 2017, where he was inactive for the NFC Championship game. After being released by Green Bay this season after training camp, McCaffrey spent just over a week on the New Orleans Saints’ practice squad before being signed to the active roster by the Jacksonville Jaguars. He played in five games with the Jaguars before being released on Oct. 21. McCaffrey will wear No. 13 for the Packers.

Barclay played in 62 regular-season games with 24 starts for the Packers since being signed by Green Bay as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2012. He also appeared in eight postseason contests with three starts for the Packers.
