GREEN BAY - The announcement of Graham Harrell's departure from the Green Bay Packers begins a period coaches tend to loathe - the process of letting go players.
The Packer's 90-man roster has to be cut to 75 by Tuesday. With that, more cuts are being reported:
#Packers also have released WR Omarius Hines.— Rob Demovsky (@RobDemovsky) August 24, 2013
Here we go people, walk out of the Butler and cuts have started. #Packers released WR Justin Wilson, agent confirmed.— Wes Hodkiewicz (@WesHod) August 24, 2013
They added running back Angelo Pease and defensive tackle Gilbert Pena to their cut list. More cuts will be required later this week to get to the NFL maximum of 75 players during the final week of camp.
WR Alex Gillett is among the players the #Packers have released today. For a college QB, the guy made a nice transition to a new spot.— Tom Silverstein (@TomSilverstein) August 24, 2013
