The Green Bay Packers have reached the 53-man roster limit.
Green Bay announced today that the following players have been released: punter Chris Bryan, tackle Chris Campbell, wide receiver Jason Chery, cornerback D.J. Clark, center/guard Evan Dietrich-Smith, wide receiver Charles Dillon, linebacker Robert Francois, tackle Breno Giacomini, quarterback Graham Harrell, tight end Spencer Havner, linebacker Alex Joseph, safety Anthony Levine, running back Kregg Lumpkin, linebacker Cyril Obiozor, linebacker Maurice Simpkins, defensive end Ronald Talley, nose tackle Anthony Toribio, wide receiver Chastin West, wide receiver Patrick Williams and defensive end Jarius Wynn.
There aren’t any big surprises on that list. We noted earlier today that the Packers were trying to trade Havner but probably wouldn’t succeed. We also noted that the Packers wanted to trade Giacomini, but we never believed the report that other teams were interested.
Two Packers, offensive lineman Allen Barbre and safety Will Blackmon, are headed for injured reserve.
Greg A. Bedard of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that the Packers will reach an injury settlement with Blackmon.
