This date doesn't effect the Packers and several other teams in anyway. The Packers aren't in line to receive any compensatory picks in 2019 anyways, they could sign anyone at anytime without risking the loss of potential draft choices.

Unless Mays has some tremendous camp, I don't see the purpose for keeping him, or a replacement for him.  Why do you need four running backs, unless the fourth is some exciting ascending prospect?  If they envision Mays as somebody with special talent who's got a shot to be something really good, I'd say use that roster spot for somebody else (CB, WR, o-line, TE, special teams, there are lots of places you might want to keep a potentially ascending young redshirt prospect.) 

Jones, Montgomery, and Wiliams are enough, in my book, so not interested in Perkins.

I suggest that because last year Montgomery ended up on IR again (2 time in 3 years), Williams missed 2-3 games with a groin/hammy?, and Jones missed another 3-4 games with a knee.
Mays, when pressed into service, fumbled on 2 of 4 carries, with 1 lost, and a total of 1 yds rushing.
I prefer not to have to use Ripkowski as the primary ball carrier if at all possible.
If Rodgers does not have a reasonable rushing threat in the backfield, the Packers passing game will be far-far less effective, because they will become a one dimensional offense.

Yes.  That was a bad, injury-oriented season, and there still was no use for the 4th RB other than the couple of courtesy carries. 

Seems to me that the odds of all three of MOnty, Jones, and Williams being injured at the same time is somewhat modest, and of all three of them getting knocked out in the very same game is even less. 

Not sure if Mays is the guy you'd want, or if he's PS eligible?  But it would seem to me that the practice squad is the place to stick your #4 RB, and then call him up if/when 2/3 of the other three are injured.

I forgot about Joel Bouagnon being on the team!

He will be the 4th RB.
We're good!
