The Green Bay Packers have started making moves to cut down their roster to the 53 man mark to open the regular season.
The following players have been released so far according to various reports and sources. Any reported cuts will not show up here, however, if not reported by a verified member of the media following the Green Bay Packers:
QB Vince Young - Per his Twitter account, Young confirms that he has been released by the Packers. Who’s going to be the Packers backup QB? B.J. Coleman? Trent Edwards? Tim Tebow? Brett Favre? (LOL on the last two…I think.)
CB Loyce Means – Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports he has been released, but told he has a good chance of returning to the practice squad.
FB Jonathan Amosa – Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post reports a league source confirms Amosa has been cut. Also a PS candidate.
T Kevin Hughes – Via Wes Hodkiewicz of the Green Bay Press Gazette, Hughes has been cut.
S Chaz Powell - Silverstein reports that Powell has been cut. Does this mean the Packers are keeping the Banjo as a backup safety?
C/G Garth Garhart - Hodkiewicz chimes in again and says Garhart is gone.
S David Fulton - Silverstein reports that Fulton is gone. Things are looking even better for the Banjo.
WR Charles Johnson - Bill Huber of Packer Report tweets. Silverstein reports team will try to sign him to their practice squad if he clears waivers.
