Packers Cut 12 Players


We’re tracking the Packers roster moves, as they work to trim their roster down to 75 players.

Green Bay waived:

  • OLB Adrian Hubbard
  • QB Matt Blanchard
  • WRs Javess Blue (injured)
  • WR Jimmie Hunt (injured)
  • WR James Butler
  • DB Kyle Sebetic
  • TE Harold Spears

The odds were against Blanchard making the 53-man roster after the Packers used a fifth-round pick on Brett Hundley. In fact, Blanchard received very little playing time during the preseason.

It wouldn’t be surprising to see another team bring him in or add him to their practice squad.


The list of players either released or placed on waivers includes:

  • LB Tavarus Dantzler
  • OT Fabbians Ebbele
  • LB Josh Francis
  • DT Lavon Hooks
  • OT Vince Kowalski

None of these players are all that notable, so it will be interesting to see who else they part ways with in the coming weeks. All five players wound up signing on with the Packers as undrafted free agents shortly after this year’s NFL draft.

We’ll have more regarding the Packers’ roster cuts as the news is available.
