Packers Release RB Dexter Williams and WR Jake Kumerow Among Others While Trimming Down to 53-Man Roster

This list will update as more announcements are made by the Packers as they finalize their final roster for the 2020 season.

Current list of Packers roster releases:

Did anyone see this one coming? Looks like even an endorsement from QB Aaron Rodgers was not enough to secure his position.

Performing in 19 games the previous two seasons, Kumerow logged 322-yards between 22 catches. After clearing waivers, it is possible that Kumerow could be added to the practice squad.

WR Darrius Shepherd

That’s what happens when your team loses confidence in you over turnovers.

With a 4-man depth ahead of RB Dexter Williams(Aaron Jones, Jamaal Williams, A.J. Dillon, Tyler Ervin), this 6th round pick from the 2019 draft+ got the cut as expected.

WR Reggie Begelton

    Too bad but he had 20 catches in 2 years. I know one was injury shortened. But Adams catches 10 a game.

  2. Skinny September 5, 2020

    Yeah, really dont get the Kumerow being cut is a surprise talk. He virtually did nothing in his time here and he wasnt available most games on top of that. WR room is shit as a whole, again! I dont care what Aaron Nagler says. What Packers executive’s wife does Montravious Adams sleep with to constantly get an NFL job? Unreal.

  3. Cheese September 5, 2020

    Oh darn, Jake Kumerow got cut. Where ever will they find another mediocre UDFA to ride the hype train down the path to nowhere?
    Reggie Beggleton is gone too? Well shucks… Some guy on the internet told me he was supposed to be the next under the radar Julio Jones type talent, despite being cut from a CFL team. I guess Green Bay really missed out on that one. If Gute doesn’t act quick we might lose our chances to get to the Super Bowl -_-

    “”This was not something we set out to do,” Gutekunst said. “He just happened to be a guy we liked who fell to us, and this was the best decision.” – Gute
    Sure….whatever you say Tiger.

    Mark Murphy
    1) Why did you let Ted stay in his position so long? You once said “Ted will retire, when he tells me he wants to retire”. Was Ted your boss, or were you his boss? The team regressed for a few years under his watch, until the Board told you he needed to go.
    2) When you were doing your GM search, you told us that you discovered that there was little to no communication going on between the head coach, and high level upper management. My question is, since you worked in the same building as these people for 12 years, did you really not have a clue any of that was happening?
    3) After Adams…where in your mind, do our wr’s and tight ends grade out against the rest of the NFL teams talent wise?
    4) After hiring Gutenkunst, you stated repeatedly that you were in charge and no major decision would be made without you, that you had the last word. Were you “on board” with the Jimmy Graham signing making him the highest paid tight end in the league?

    Sent to Murphy’s monthly article…i’ll let you know if i get a reply…:)
