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.
