His name is Robert Paulson. No, actually, their names are Kyle Murphy, Devante Mays and Quinten Rollins.
Those dudes will not be back with the Green Bay Packers.
All three were put on injured reserve as the Packers were cutting their roster down to the 53-man limit on Saturday. And they have all been released with an injury settlement.
According to NFL transactions, #Packers DB Quinten Rollins, T Kyle Murphy and RB Devante Mays were waived injured, which means they’ll be released with an injury settlement.

Basically, what that says, is we were going to cut you anyway, but here’s a little cash to have on the way out the door. Kind of like if you’re a mobster and you hand someone an envelope full of hundreds and then you whack that guy.
The only difference is you get to pick up the envelope of hundreds on the latter scenario. You know… because the guy is dead.
For Rollins, it’s a fitting end.
A former second-round pick, Rollins played well as a rookie and then backslid. Massively.
If he were an alcoholic, he would have went from recovery to living on the streets and drinking fucking Mad Dog out of a paper bag. That’s the most apt comparison I could make.
The Deuce Deuce is only like $2 per bottle — or at least it was in my 20/20 times — so, just if you were wondering.
The Packers moved Rollins to safety and that seemingly, may have, saved his career. But no. Gutes is swabbing the decks of all Ted Thompson trash.
Murphy, at least early on in the preseason, appeared to be the top backup offensive lineman. And let’s be frank. The backups on the offensive line are straight-up garbage. Jason Spriggs is still on the team for fuck’s sake. That guy should have a job at an auto body shop at this point.
You’d call him Cutter.
The starting five offensive line? They better stay healthy all season.
Oh, but wait. Bryan Bulaga is one of those guys. I’m putting the over/under on his next ACL tear at 12 games. So feel free to send me your action.
And then there’s Devante Mays.
