Midafternoon Packers cuts update
By Rob Demovsky
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The biggest name among the Green Bay Packers' cuts so far clearly was quarterback Vince Young, who was released on Saturday morning.
But they also have cut a couple of players who saw significant playing time last season in running back Alex Green and tight end D.J. Williams.
Green was their leading rusher last season with 464 yards, and Williams played in 14 of 18 games last season (including playoffs).
With a few hours left before teams have to trim their rosters to 53 players, here’s the latest list of the players who have been released.
Note: This list is a compilation of our own reporting here at ESPN plus reports from the Green Bay Press-Gazette, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Packer Report, ESPNMilwaukee.com and players with verified Twitter accounts. With 18 cuts already confirmed, the Packers will have to make four more roster moves to reach the 53-man limit.
