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.
