Some first-round picks in the NFL never cut it in the league.
One former first-round pick from the Las Vegas Raiders is facing this situation.
With this player, they now look for their next team to join.
So which former Raiders player is now looking for a new job?
Former Raiders Safety Was Recently Released
Former Raiders safety Johnathan Abram is now back on waivers for the second time this season.
After the Raiders released him, the Green Bay Packers picked him up.
However, his stay with the Packers is now over, as they cut Abram from the team.
The #Packers are waiving safety Johnathan Abram, per source.
Abram contributed during his short stint in Green Bay, which now wants to look at its young guys. So for the second time in three weeks, the former #Raiders first-round pick hits waivers.

While things are going badly for the former first-round pick, he had a promising career early in his career.
His 2021 season was his best, as he had 116 combined tackles and one interception.
This performance last season from him can give him some hope to rebound in the NFL.
But can Abram make a recovery and find a new team this season?
Abram Could Rebound In 2022 With A Surprising Team
There’s one NFL team that might call Abram to join them.
This team is the Chicago Bears.
The Bears are down a safety because of an injury Eddie Jackson suffered during Week 12 against the New York Jets.
With him out of the lineup, it could be a potential landing spot for the former first-round pick.
While it might not be the ideal landing spot for him, he can make a rebound in Chicago.
With the team having a defensive-minded head coach, he might turn his career around before he ends up becoming a first-round bust.
