The 2016 season may have come to an abrupt end for the Detroit Lions on Saturday night, but there is no time to live in the past. On Monday, former Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jared Abbrederis broke the news himself via Twitter that he is joining the Lions.
I am also very thankful and excited to be joining the @Lions! Can't wait to start the new journey with my new team! Time to get to work!
