Packers waive Kevin Dorsey along with Brandon Bostick

Tight end Brandon Bostick beat the Packers to the punch by announcing that the team had given him a pink slip on Monday, a move that Green Bay confirmed with an official announcement on Tuesday.

Bostick wasn’t the only player shuffled off the roster. The Packers also announced that they have waived wide receiver Kevin Dorsey.

Dorsey was a 2013 seventh-round pick and spent his rookie season on injured reserve. He got waived at the end of the summer in 2014, but was brought back in October and caught one pass and made a couple of special teams tackles in three games before winding up back on injured reserve again to close the season.

The departures leave the Pack with three tight ends and seven wideouts on their roster, a number that will drop if wide receiver Randall Cobb winds up seeking his fortune elsewhere as a free agent.

  1. “Scape goat, he catches that pass he is still on that team.. oh well.”
    He was instructed to not even attempt to catch it just block his man trying to field it,how hard was that order to follow? he didnt do crap for two seasons as a seventh round pick from div 2 Newberry college so why should he take up a vital roster spot on the Packers that can go to a much better player. even if he had caught that ball he would have been cut because his value to the Packers had ended with his poor performance over the last two years.

  2. Ted Thompson doesn’t like carrying players with injury problems.

    Both these players had that issue.

    Roster spots are very precious on the Packers and seldom do they ever go to waste.

  3. “I’m sure he’s happy he doesn’t have to deal with any more more of the cheeseheads playoff meltdowns.everybody should jump off that sinking ship.”
    Sinking ship? really? a playoff meltdown is alot better than sitting at home wishing you even had a chance to have a meltdown which the Viking wont for many a year to come.

  4. Both players were on the first flight out of Green Bay with grins the size of Texas on their faces, they may no longer have jobs in the NFL, but are escaping the prison known as Green Bay Wisconsin!

  5. In a recent poll of NFL players, every single one of them responded that they would rather lose in the playoffs, rather than not make the playoffs at all. Well, all except Vikings players, who responded with “what are playoffs”?

  6. I wouldn’t be surprised to see either one or maybe both playing for the Vikings next season. Some teams scout for talent, the Vikings just watch the Packer waiver wire.

  7. If I were a Seahawks fan I’d shut up about choking.
    I wish these two guys well. Anyone who knows the Packers and has been following them (instead of hating on them) would know it was not only the mistake in the game that cost Bostick his job. Time to move on.

  8. As a Hawks fan I was glad to see Bostock botch the onside kick. However, I hope that wasn’t the reason GB cut the guy. That would be idiotic. If that’s the case, they should cut Clay Matthews for saying he was too tired to keep playing or the head coach for getting conservative.

  9. What the heck are the Packers doing, these are the best players on their roster. Clowns are playing music louder than ever. They won’t make the playoff this year, guaranteed.

    Nope, that wasn’t the reason, but it probably did nothing to help him make the team this year. The reason Bostick was cut was that he had 9 catches in 3 years and was injured a lot. Whatever the Packers do people will criticize them, it comes with success. It is funny actually, it seems people think that this guy should be guaranteed a roster spot because he did not make that play. Or they just like to show off that they know how to spell scapegoat. The Packers choked that game as a team, they own it, you can blame anything and anyone you want for that loss and you will be right. Bostick and Slocum both have been under-performing for awhile, time to move on.

    I’ll take that guaranteed bet. Why don’t you put your money where your foot usually is?

  12. Reading a lot of comments from haters out there. It is pretty amusing. Yeah ship is sinking….. Players can’t wait to get out the door…..

    Ok. Have the best QB in the league. Great management. The Packers are going to be in contention again next year just like every other year. If the ship is sinking so fast, why did Vegas give them the 3rd best odds at winning the SB next year??? Tell me that you geniuses.

  13. Wow it’s only February and the viking fans are already talking about sinking ships and us not making the playoffs. Same exact crap as the last off season and the one before that. You guys sure don’t learn. Anyone out there that wants to bet the packers don’t make the playoffs and the vikings do, please let me know. I’ll give you real good odds.

    Sorry but aaron Rodgers taught us all that packers and packer fans don’t keep their word when it comes to bets. Whenever he pays up his debts then maybe I’ll take a Packer fan serious….maybe….maybe.

    Sorry can’t take you serious with a cheese wedge as a hat.

  15. As a longtime Packer fan, I wish to thank AJ Hawk for his 9 seasons – including a super bowl – and only missing 2 regular season games with injury. He is a model of “availability” and played hard like a Buckeye. We wish him a long and successful career in and after the NFL.

  16. Dorsey hasn’t shown much production and neither has Bostick, THAT is why they’ve been released. Bostick was expected to compete for the starting TE spot, didn’t do anything to beat out Quarless OR Richard Rodgers and became even more expendable by failing his DESIGNED assignment on that onside kick in playoffs–in THE most important game of his career–he failed to do the assignment he was instructed to perform. Any player that free hands instead of what the coach’s play design is does NOT belong on the TEAM–no “I” found in team. Bostick and Dorsey just haven’t been on the field enough, because of injury and lack of production-other options will be promoted or signed.

    The funny part is reading the comments from Seahawks fans about the Packers choking!!! Pretty ironic!
    ———————————————————————————

    What’s even funnier is the fact that you have all these ignorant Vikings fans doing the same thing.

    Do you realize that Minnesota has never led the game in any of the 4 Super Bowls they’ve played in.
    In fact they couldn’t even tie any of their opponents in 16 quarters of Championship play.
    Well, unless you count the score at the time of the coin flip.

    There’s a reason they chose the color purple for their uniforms. “Cough! Cough!!”

  18. Yeah, because the cheese wedge hats are SO much more ridiculous than the moronic horns. They should be powder horns so that you people could easily put yourselves out of your misery… which is deep rooted and all encompassing.

  19. It’s so funny how the Vikings trolls are reacting. Willing to bet that 90% of the fools don’t know him

    The Vikings have made the playoffs more than ANY team in their division since the Vikes came in the league.

    I understand, you are a packer fan.

    Something happens when you root for the green n mustard…….for you I guess basic math is a problem.

    18 division titles to your 14.

    There endeth the lesson.

  21. Bridgeh20,

    You’ve reached your comment limit for this thread with this identity. Please switch to Ariani, or Cody, or Poet, Or Teddytrust, or one of your other 42 trolling identities.

    Oh… and have a lousy evening.

  22. Think somebody better go back and COUNT again-Packers have WON their division 20 TIMES since the Vikings entered the league including 4 CONSECUTIVE YEARS NOW. The Vikings have a won-lost record in playoffs: 19 wins, 27 LOSSES and ZERO SB wins. Packers are 27 WINS, 18 LOSSES and TWO Super Bowl Titles during this time. They are the ALL-TIME NFL Championship LEADER with 13 Titles including 3 IN A ROW in ’29-’31 under Coach Curly Lambeau and again ’65-67 under Coach Vince Lombardi, the ONLY NFL team to ever win 3 Consecutive championships.

  23. I’m over Bostick’s mistake, and I wish him well.

    He seemed to be in a really odd spot with the Packers. From what I saw in 2013 he was by far the most athletic/flashy of all their TE’s. Despite that, he barely played on offense being beaten by two generic TEs…maybe due to blocking deficiency or not understanding the offense.

    I’m sure he’ll get a camp shot with someone.

  24. That’s TWO Super Bowls under Lombardi and NOW another SB title by Holmgren and one under McCarthy–that’s FOUR SB titles total since Vikings entered the league. Packers have as many SB Titles as Vikings have LOSSES in SB’s.

  25. There would be not so many posts on here if not for Packer fans arguing with Viking fans.If we don’t respond to the queen trolls they will go away.That simple.

  26. I wouldn’t be surprised to see either one or maybe both playing for the Vikings next season. Some teams scout for talent, the Vikings just watch the Packer waiver wire…

    You actually said that about TT? Scout for talent? TT ‘s whole existence is based on the street free agent waiver wire

  27. That’s TWO Super Bowls under Lombardi and NOW another SB title by Holmgren and one under McCarthy–that’s FOUR SB titles total since Vikings entered the league. Packers have as many SB Titles as Vikings have LOSSES in SB’s…

    2 in the last 50 years. As your Ron Wolf said..” A Fart in the Wind”

  28. 2 things I sense from the Packers by the cuts they are making. They are going to resign Cobb and they are going to add another offensive weapon via free agency. With the receiving corps being solid with Nelson, Cobb, Adams, and possibly Abbederis or Janis contributing next year, my bet would be a pass catching tightend that can stretch the middle of the field will be the target.

  29. Hopefully they can quickly distance themselves from the shame and humiliation of the worst chokejob in playoff history.

    They didn’t play for Seattle.

  31. They didn’t play for Seattle.
    ————————————
    You could’ve fooled me. The last 5 minutes it looked like the entire GB defense was on Seattle’s payroll, helping them score as fast as they did. oops, I meant the entire defense minus 1, who was too tired to play.

  32. Cobb’s a better value as a receiver/RB/whatever. Why risk an injury or kick/punt returns? Better to draft or sign a return specialist.

    GB’s problem is not on offense – except for not having a good backup QB. They need an impact player on the D line or LB position. They have had a problem generating consistent pressure on opposing QBs.

    Why is this so fascinating to you?

  34. All I can go by is since the Vikes have been around, which is 1961.

    In that time, we have won the division more times than any team in our division.
    In the years we dominated, especially the 70s, and part of the 80s, the Vikes won the division 11 times in a row!!!!

    The packers had ONE winning season between 1970-1991.

    Two decades of LOSING…….Vikes have NEVER had 2 decades of losing.

    Nuff said………
