    Packers Release 19 Players, Place Three On Injured Reserve
    posted 08/30/2008

    The Green Bay Packers released 19 players and placed three on injured reserve. Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations, announced the transactions Saturday.

    Released Saturday were wide receiver Jake Allen, cornerback Scorpio Babers, defensive tackle Conrad Bolston, center Brennen Carvalho, safety Tyrone Culver, linebacker Spencer Havner, tight end Joey Haynos, running back Noah Herron, guard Ryan Keenan, linebacker Danny Lansanah, defensive tackle Alfred Malone, running back Vernand Morency, defensive tackle Daniel Muir, cornerback Joe Porter, wide receiver Johnny Quinn, wide receiver Taj Smith, wide receiver Brett Swain, tackle Orrin Thompson and fullback Corey White.

    Defensive tackle Rodney Allen, center Junius Coston and long snapper J.J. Jansen were placed on injured reserve.




    I am really, really getting irritated by Ted Thompson.

    Good. Now I have nothing to force me to even *kinda* like the Packers.

    The Broncos could use a good potential starting RB...*coughVernandcough*

    RB seems like a strong position all around in the NFL these days.

    So, that's Morency, Bell and DeGrate that have been released this week.

    Who's left in the NFL?

    From what I understand, if you have 2 years NFL experience on a roster you cannot be placed on the practice squad. That is why he was cut.
