Kevin Dorsey: Also Cut by Packers

Kevin Dorsey

The Green Bay Packers have given receiver Kevin Dorsey his walking papers.

Dorsey joins tight end Brandon Bostick in the exclusive group of guys the Packers have cut this week.

Dorsey was a seventh-round pick by the Packers in 2013. He spent all of that season on injured reserve with the type of injury that isn’t season-ending. That was a clear signal that Dorsey wasn’t quite ready for prime time, but let’s keep him in around for a year and see what happens.

What happened was this.

Not much.

Dorsey landed on the Packers practice squad to start the 2014 season. He was called up to the 53-man roster in October, but his stay was short. He went on injured reserve again in early November.

Dorsey’s body of work pretty much tells us one thing — he couldn’t or wouldn’t play special teams.

His Packers career consists of three games and most of his playing time came on special teams. His offensive line is one catch for four yards.

    Why not draft players late who you know can play a vital role on special teams? See UDFA Jarrett Bush.

      Because your drafting stars in HS and college who didn’t play a lot of special teams. So, other than at kick returner, you don’t know how good they are going to be at ST until they are on the team. Therefore, you draft guys who are good at their position and hope they are also decent at ST.
