McCaffrey ended up on the Packers' practice squad in late October after being waived by Jacksonville, and the move to San Fransisco is likely a result of rookie wideout Victor Bolden going down with an ankle injury Sunday. Signing McCaffrey probably means that Bolden is set to miss time, but McCaffrey is not expected to be much of a factor in the passing game regardless.
The Packers signed McCaffrey to their practice squad Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
McCaffrey turned in an impressive preseason for the Packers and made a compelling case for a roster spot, but was ultimately one of the team's final cuts. The Duke product quickly reached a deal with the Saints' practice squad before being signed onto the Jaguars' 53-man roster in September. McCaffrey appeared in five games for the Jacksonville, but was targeted just once during that span, gaining four yards on his lone reception before being waived last weekend. After clearing waivers, McCaffrey will return to the Packers, but will likely need an injury or two to hit the team's wideout ranks before being promoted to the active roster.
McCaffrey was waived by the Jaguars on Saturday, Ryan O'Halloran of The Florida Times-Union reports.
McCaffrey joined the Jaguars when Allen Robinson (knee) was placed on injured reserve after Week 1, but played a minimal role on offense with one reception for four yards on the season. The 23-year-old will likely end up on someone's practice squad if he clears waivers. Receiver Jaydon Mickens takes McCaffrey's place on the Jaguars' 53-man roster.
McCaffrey was waived by the Packers on Saturday, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.
The decision to part ways with McCaffrey certainly raises eyebrows, as the Duke product was looking to be one of the more polished route runners in the competition for a reserve job at receiver. If he isn't claimed by a team off waivers, McCaffrey is a very strong candidate for the practice squad.
