My morning-after take on the NFC North’s cutdown day: Green Bay had some shockers and Detroit engineered a few surprises. Chicago and Minnesota were entirely predictable.

Packers general manager Ted Thompson has scheduled a mid-afternoon news conference to comment the organization’s decision to part ways with quarterback Brian Brohm, a second-round pick in 2008, and safety Anthony Smith, a free-agent pickup who seemed to be challenging for a starting job. I’ll get you details from that event as soon as I can. I'm also itching to compare how each team's draft class fared, but we might as well wait until the middle of the week when we know for sure who will be on the opening-week roster.

Remember, teams can start signing players to their practice squads Sunday at noon ET. Most NFL teams will continue to adjust their roster over the next few days through waiver claims, trades and signings of vested free agents who were released or otherwise available. So while the flurry of moves occurred Saturday, the trickle will continue for at least another 48 hours.

For now, let’s take a spin through Sunday coverage in the NFC North:
