Packers make eight early cuts


Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports that the Packers have begun making final cuts ahead of tonight’s deadline. G.M. Ted Thompson has said goodbye to safety Anthony Levine, center Sampson Genus, tackle Andrew Datko, offensive lineman Reggie Wells, wide receiver Dale Moss, and guard Greg Van Roten.

Wells is a versatile journeyman capable of playing guard, center, and tackle. Thompson clearly believed he was a jack of many trades, but master of none. Datko was the Packers’ seventh-round pick this spring. Van Roten and Moss were undrafted rookies. Per Silverstein, they latter two are both “strong candidates” for the Packers’ practice squad.

Wes Hodkiewicz of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports that tackle Shea Allard and tight end Brandon Bostick are also among today’s cuts.

And the Packers have many more to go.

    The young receivers that were supposedly going to endanger Donald Driver’s chances of staying with the pack for a 14th season completely failed to step up. Thus all that speculation about Driver being waived and Jones being traded are not going to come to pass. Of course it was all wild ass speculation to begin with.

    Hope Moss makes his way to the Dolphins. Won’t help this year, but looks like they are all in on developing young guys this yar, so why not? You can’t teach 6’3″ and fast.

    Don’t mind ol’ Contra.

    He’s just upset that the packers won more games last year than the Vikings will win total this decade.

    He’s also liking his chops, because everyone we cut is miles above the starters in Minnesota, where once good Packers go to die.

    Contra don’t forget about the season before when the Packers swept the Vikes as well during Brett’s finals season.

    Why would Ted Thompson wear a sun visor during an evening game?
