TE Kevin Rader has been released. He was an undrafted free agent.

Add OLB James Hearns to the list of cut players.

OL Pankey cut - most notable so far.  Goodson and Hawkins top.  I had high hopes for Hawkins to develop but such a let down.  Thought Goodson might have a shot over Rollins, Waters...

Martini too now - I thought he was very, very limited.  Hope he’s not on PS

Donnerson.  Starting to get an occasional guy who was thought might possibly make it. 

Silverstein seems to be certain that Murphy is not going to make it. 

Corners, Pipkens gone; Donatello, Goodson, Hawkins.  And talk about Rollins being injured (just for the sake of variety). 

Is Waters the last man standing?

Heh heh, I'd put this in other column, but recent Packers Janis and Vogel both got cut by Cleveland.  So if you've cut too many cornerbacks and want to sign a vets-minimum gunner, there is always Janis!  :):)  (And just in case you want a little more experienced depth at wide receiver too!  :):):)

Looking good for Waters as the 6th CB... I'd like that.

I hope Boyle isn't rostered- I'd rather keep a 4th TE or 6th DL since Pettine looks to play more 3 DL alignments.

WooD tweeted Donnerson and Mays were cut... That leaves just 5 OLB's and Bouagnon as the 3rd RD the first two weeks- interesting... Donnerson isn't close to NFL ready, so that's no surprise.

I really hope they can keep Donnerson around on the PS.  I thought he flashed at times- not good enough to be rostered yet but some real developmental talent imo

Hope Pack can find a better 3rd RB if they are set on keeping 3.   Otherwise roll with 2 and Cobb can take over duties as needed for a game

The Packers started the day with 89 players on their roster. With the 16 reported cuts, it should leave them needing to make 20 more roster decisions.

Yeah, Donnerson is perfect for the PS... Keeping 2 RB the first two weeks is OK, too... The 3rd RB wouldn't be active for game day anyway, and the Packers could sign a guy for the 2nd game if Monty or Williams get hurt the first game, which wouldn't be a surprise.

Wow- that's the first surprise for me... Definitely 4 TE's now- both Tonyan and Kendricks look safe, which is a good thing.
