At 4 PM Saturday all 32 NFL teams were required to cut their rosters to the 53 men they will carry into the regular season. In order to do that, the Green Bay Packers needed to release 18 players.
General Manager Ted Thompson announced Saturday those 18 players would be: WR Jared Abbrederis, LB Carl Bradford. RB John Crockett. Jean Fanor, C Garth Gerhart, CB Tay Glover-Wright, TE Mitchell Henry, RB Rajion Neal, TE Justin Perillo, C/G Andy Phillips, DT Christian Ringo, G Matt Rotheram, LB Joe Thomas, DT Khyri Thornton, LB James Vaughters, T Jeremy Vujnovich, CB Ryan White and WR Ed Williams
The team also waived/injured WR Larry Pinkard and LB Jermauria Rasco. Additionally, DE Letroy Guion and DE Datone Jones were placed on the reserve/suspended list.
Abbrederis is a Wisconsin favorite and was picked in the 2014 fifth round by The Pack. The Packers 53 man roster includes five wide receivers.
