Packers Cut Three To Reach 80-Man Limit
The Green Bay Packers released three players to reach the NFL-mandated 80-man roster limit Tuesday.
The players are linebacker K.C. Asiodu, who was picked up as a free agent on August 3, guard Adrian Battles, who finished last season on the team’s practice squad, and receiver Antonio Robinson.
None of the moves come as a surprise.
Robinson had no chance of making the team at a position of considerable strength. He had only one reception for 15 yards in the preseason.
Battles suffered an Achilles injury the first day of training camp and never practiced again. Asiodu did little to differentiate himself before suffering a chest injury a week ago.
It’s likely both players got injury settlements.

The Packers will have to trim the roster to 53 by Saturday.
