The Green Bay Packers officially released OL Don Barclay from injured reserve on Tuesday.
This is an interesting move, as Barclay was tossed out a player Green Bay could bring back from injured reserve later on in the year.
Barclay, 28, wound up signing on with the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of West Virginia back in 2012. He’s managed to make the 53-man roster in each of his first five years in the NFL and returned to the Packers on a one-year, $1.025 million contract this past March.
The Packers placed Barclay on injured reserve coming out of the preseason.
In 2016, Barclay was active for all 16 games for the Packers and played a total of 196 snaps, according to Pro Football Focus.
