The cool kids say the NFL is a deadline-driven business. But plenty of teams are doing business more than two days in advance of the next big deadline.
Count the Packers among those getting a jump on the Tuesday timetable for cutting the roster to 75. They’ve dropped seven players.
Gone are safety Charles Clay, cornerback Antonio Dennard, receiver Chris Harper (pictured), linebacker Korey Jones, fullback Ina Liaina, quarterback Chase Rettig, and receiver Gerrard Sheppard.
Harper, a fourth-round pick of the Seahawks in 2013, was claimed off waivers from the 49ers last October. He appeared in four games for the Packers last year, with no catches. Sheppard arrived via waivers on July 30, after being released by the Ravens.
