Come out to the Journal Sentinel Sports Show on Thursday March 5 from 4 pm – 6 pm to meet with former Green Bay Packers Wide Receiver Jared Abbrederis at the Mercury Marine booth!
Jared Abbrederis is a Wisconsin Native, University of Wisconsin Football legend, and current wide receiver for the Green Bay Packers. Abbrederis grew up in Wautoma, WI and went on to play college football at the University of Wisconsin where he was awarded First Team All-Big Ten and the Burlsworth Trophy. Abbrederis was drafted by the Packers in the fifth round of the 2014 NFL draft. He became the first University of Wisconsin player drafted by the Packers since Bill Ferrario (fourth round) in 2001 and just the second Badgers WR ever to be drafted by Green Bay. Abbrederis is also the first Wisconsin native to be drafted by Green Bay since Mark Tauscher (Marshfield, WI) in 2000. During the 2015 NFL season, Abbrederis played in 10 games where he caught 9 passes for 111 yards.
On Friday, March 6 from 4 pm – 6 pm former Green Bay Packers Cornerback Jarrett Bush will be in the Chevy booth.
Jarrett Bush was signed by the Packers in September 2006. Despite joining the team just a week before the season opener, Bush would be one of four rookies to play in every game during the season. He played mainly as a third or fourth cornerback and on special teams during his career with the Packers. On March 13, 2009, the Titans signed Bush to an offer sheet. The Packers matched the Titans offer on March 16 and Bush opted to stay with Green Bay. During the 2010 season, for his outstanding work as a gunner on special teams, Bush was named a team captain for the 2010 playoffs.
Both players will be available for a quick photograph and autograph during these special sessions.
