The Packers are making a change to their quarterback room as they head into the pre-training camp break.

The team announced that they cut Kurt Benkert from their 90-man roster on Friday. Aaron Rodgers, Jordan Love, and Danny Etling remain on the roster in Green Bay.

Benkert signed with the Packers last spring and spent most of last season on the practice squad. He was elevated from the practice squad when Love went on the COVID reserve list in December and made his regular season debut by kneeling the ball twice at the end of a win over the Bears.

Benkert joined the Falcons after going undrafted in 2018 and spent time on their practice squad, injured reserve, and active roster over three seasons.

    Yes, hopefully, there will be some “food for him”.


  2. He can tell his grandkids he suited up for the Packers and took the field against the Bears.

    I can’t.

  3. A good soldier who was there when he was needed. Hope Kurt finds another opportunity.

  4. I hope my teem pix him up!

    He is an instent starter for my Vikes, at many posishins.

  5. Pretty classless moove on Father’s Day!!! Maybe they’re tradeing too get Huntley back. Kid looked good with the raven’s!

  6. It was largely reported last year that he had been out-performing Love regularly during practice. They probably had to cut him to save Love’s confidence.
