Maybe it shows that the Green Bay Packers have one of the deepest rosters in the NFL. Or maybe it’s just a meaningless quirk of the waiver wire.
But the Packers had more players picked up off waivers than any other team.
Greg A. Bedard of the Journal Sentinel points out that of the players the Packers waived to get down to the 53-man roster limit on Saturday, five were claimed by another team: tight end or linebacker (or 60-minute man) Spencer Havner by the Lions, linebacker Cyril Obiozor by the Cardinals, running back Kregg Lumpkin by the Bucs, nose tackle Anthony Toribio by the Chiefs and center Evan Dietrich-Smith by the Seahawks.
No other team had even four players claimed. The Vikings, Bears, Steelers and Cowboys each had three, while the Jets, Giants, Browns and Dolphins each had two.
