Here Are Packers’ 2018 Roster Cuts
The Green Bay Packers are trimming their roster. They have to get to the 53-man limit by 4 p.m. ET. Refresh and we will update throughout the day, with the latest at the top.
DL Joey Mbu — The Packers apparently like this guy at one time. Clearly, not anymore.
OL Austin Davis — With how badly the Packers’ backup offensive linemen played during the preseason, I wouldn’t be surprised if another move on the line was forthcoming.
TE Emanuel Byrd — The Packers kept four tight ends. Byrd was on the roster last year for a bit, but won’t be this year.
RB LeShun Daniels — No idea. He signed in August.
FB Joe Kerridge — The Packers will not have a fullback after all. Remember when they kept three of them?
OL Kofi Amichia — Not much of a surprise here. Amichia was one of Ted’s draft picks last year. Didn’t make the roster then. Didn’t make it now.
OL Dillon Day — All I know about this guy is he had more hair than anyone on the Packers’ roster.
DL Conor Sheehy — Here’s another undrafted free agent.
WR Kyle Lewis — Obviously this was a foregone conclusion.
WR Adonis Jennings — As was this.
LB James Hearns — Hearns was an August waiver claim pickup from Dallas. I didn’t even know his name until today.
DL James Looney — Here’s another seventh-round pick from this year getting the boot. Probably because he played like a seventh-round pick.
DL Tyler Lancaster — Here’s another undrafted free agent.
CB Demetri Goodson — This guy was like a cockroach. He just kept surviving somehow. Well, your reign of mediocrity is over, hoss!
ILB Greer Martini — Martini played pretty well, but the Packers have obviously decided to go light at the inside linebacker position.
LB Vince Biegel — Badger great Vince Biegel did little to nothing to really warrant a roster spot this preseason.
RB Joel Bouagnon — He definitely had a better chance of sticking than Devante Mays, but tough to do with the three guys the Packers have out front.
S Marwin Evans — Evans has fallen behind Jermaine Whitehead on the depth chart.
LS Zach Triner — Because really, how many long snappers do you need?
ILB Ahmad Thomas — This is a surprise simply because Thomas played so well during the preseason. Probably says Oren Burks is returning sooner rather than later.
FB Aaron Ripkowski — This is a bit of a surprise considering how much Mike McCarthy loves his fullbacks.
CB Josh Hawkins — This is not a surprise considering how he played in the final preseason game and the team’s depth at the position.
OLB Chris Odom — The emergence of Reggie Gilbert made Odom the odd man out.
OLB Kendall Donnerson — Donnerson was a seventh-round pick that didn’t make an impact.
OL Adam Pankey — Like the rest of the Packers backup offensive lineman, Pankey didn’t play well.
CB Donatello Brown — Brown was pretty much in the same position as Hawkins.
WR DeAngelo Yancey — Yancey showed improvement in year two, but the Packers have a logjam at receiver.
RB Bronson Hill — Hill was a late “depth” addition to the roster during camp and didn’t really have much of a chance.
OLB Marcus Porter — Now we’re getting into the undrafted free agents.
TE Ryan Smith — Same.
TE Kevin Rader — Same.
LB Naashon Hughes — Same.
OL Kyle Murphy — Murphy, which may have actually been the Packers’ best backup lineman, is going on IR with an ankle injury. It will be the second year in a row he went on IR.
CB/S Quinten Rollins — Rollins is going on injured reserve with a hamstring injury. Considering that type of injury isn’t long-term, it’s still possible Rollins could be released.
RB Devante Mays — Mays hasn’t been able to get on the field during camp and actually was officially put on IR. It was initially reported that he was released. That could still happen.
RB Aaron Jones — Jones will be suspended for the first two games, so won’t count against the roster.
QB Brett Hundley — Was traded to Seattle and his roster spot was not filled.
