Coming off a gimme win against the Giants, the Packers are looking to make a few more roster moves to improve their trajectory going into the playoffs — which, with Minnesota’s loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Monday night, is looking better than ever.
Former Jacksonville Jaguars RB Tyler Ervin Claimed Off Waivers
It’s likely that he will be taking the place of Tremon Smith — who, as mentioned below, has been released.
Kick Returner Tremon Smith Has Been Released
Tremon took over for Darrius Shepherd who also was not producing up to that point. Another sad chapter in the story that is the 2019 Packers Special Teams.
ALERT: The Packers just had their longest punt return of the season.
Tremon Smith returned it 3 yards…before fumbling out of bounds.
Well, this didn't work out well.
The Green Bay Packers released CB Tremon Smith. General Manager Brian Gutekunst announced the transaction Monday. Smith has played in six games for the Packers this season, seeing time as the team’s primary kick and punt returner.
Total punt return yards for Tremon: 0 (Zero) — That’s the same amount of punt return yards as the regulars in our comments section have.
Former Packers WR Trevor Davis waived by the Raiders
Not directly Packers related, but another failed kick returner for the Packers that had went to the Raiders has now been waived.
The Raiders have waived WR Trevor Davis, per source. He was acquired via a trade from the Packers earlier this season.
We didn’t put up a post about it last week, but here are the moves made last week by Green Bay prior to the Giants game:
11/29 – T Jared Veldheer claimed off waivers from New England Patriots
11/26 – T Yosh Nijman signed to active roster from practice squad; T Cody Conway signed to practice squad
11/23 – G Cole Madison placed on injured reserve
The first two are to help bolster the o-line while the Madison move has expected given the recent announcement of his knee injury.
