The Green Bay Packers have made five roster moves to reach the NFL-mandated 75-player limit of this week. Released were running backs DeShawn Wynn and Ryan Powdrell, along with wide receiver Chris Francies and offensive lineman Ryan Considine. Additionally, defensive tackle Justin Harrell has been placed on the reserve/physically unable to perform list. Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations, announced the transactions Monday.

Players on the reserve/PUP list cannot be placed on the active roster during the first six weeks of the season. After that time, they are eligible to practice with the club for up to three weeks. If a player is activated from the reserve/PUP list to the active roster, a subsequent roster move must be made to maintain the 53-man active roster limit.

Which means that Lumpkin may very well be a survivor.

I LIKE IT. For once I may be seeing it the Ted Thompson way, scary :whipitgood: isn't it?

I think wynn will end up with another team that needs depth at back if he ever gets healthy. Hope Harrell regains his health as the packers are one injury from being very thin at nt.

Haha Wynn, I knew it. I hope he comes around, a lot of talent to waste there.

Look for Wynn and Francies both to be picked up on the practice squad.

Francies for sure, unless he has ran out of options.

It's not too surprising at all. Most teams release their players with NFL experience to allow them the courtesy of trying to latch onto another team. Getting rid of them quick like this gives another team the chance to drop a sixth person and pick up one of the other guys for the preseason of the game.

'Tis.

3 things you can count on in life:
1) you'll pay taxes,
2) you'll die,
3) Justin Harrell will be injured

Was keeping, say, Scorpio Babers really more important than giving Wynn one finally chance during the 4th preseason game now that he's able to play? I don't know. I'm a bit perplexed.

The real battle is between Lumpkin and Morency for the #4 RB spot. Those are two players to watch in Thursday night's game. Noah Herron probably has the #3 job pretty much sewn up.

Looks like the team ran out of patience with Wynn, or just didn't see the commitment from Wynn to warrant keeping him on the team. I was a bit surprised, but we don't know what happens behind closed doors.

With the running attack we have shown this preseason i wish they would have given wynn a chance to show what he has this year also. He will endup somewhere in the nfl.

He does. The #3 RB job belongs to Noah Herron.

He's a solid blocker, and can get us 4 yards a carry.

Picking two from Herron, Morency and Blumpkin is going to be tough. Herron is easily the most consistent of the three, he's not flashy but he gets the job done. Mo is probably the best reciever, and best at blitz pickup which makes him a very good 3rd down back. And Blumpkin probaly has the most raw talent and potential out of the three, i could see him making the #4 slot just because of that. So i think its down to Herron/Morency for the #3.

If they can manage to keep Grant, Jackson, Herron, Morency and somehow hide Blumpkin on the PS, i think everyone wins. But i fear he may have shown too much this preaseason for that to happen. It will be interesting to see how the RB's fair in this last game.

Its a shame that there really isnt anyone on the roster you could say is a "goal-line" type back, they dont have a davenport type guy. Maybe Blumpkin could be someone they develope into that sort of role? He seems to really be able to fight for the yards.

uffda udfa (21h) : Guion suspension upheld...lost for 3 games
uffda udfa (22h) : He works boundary...great body control...great feet...goes deep...runs well...is strong. Jordy Clone, maybe.
uffda udfa (22h) : Tell me he doesn't remind you of 87...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zPZNolFvPI
Zero2Cool (22h) : Only thing that matters : 40 Yrd Dash: 4.54
uffda udfa (22h) : Butler is 6'2 215...Hmmm, wonder what TT has in mind. Ha.
uffda udfa (22h) : TT went out and got us Jordy's replacement...James Butler...not even a camp invite.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : I knew what you were saying and I loved it! From a production standpoint it was worse than college radio. It had Aaron which made it worth
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : I wouldn't know good radio if it sat on my face, but I know what I find informational and worthwhile. Tuesday with Aaron, was both.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : I am saying my zero experience in radio > your whatever years. :D Bahahahahah
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : Ha! Yeah, I only was involved in making good radio for 8 years. Don't know a thing.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : Yeah, I'm not surprised I know good radio better than you. Not a big deal, you have your strengths, radio isn't one.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : We have very different tastes. I worked in radio for many years. Thought the show was so much worse than it needed to be.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : NFL Pick'em v2.0 is here!
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : Wilde was great choice and if not for Jason's rapport with Aaron, never would have happened.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : I never caught it live...listened to podcast a few times. Wilde was the wrong guy for that show.
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : That was poorly worded, my mistake. I was regular, it was great peak into his life. Planned meetings around it lol
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : As for Tuesday's with Aaron I did listen, but I wasn't a regular.
Smokey (26-Aug) : Anyone seen Polargrizzz lately, he's AWOL !
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : If you listened to them, Aaron urged them to go past the 10 minutes. Jason would be an idiot to cut it off.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : The contract stated 10 minutes but the show always went longer. Sounds like 540 took advantage and perhaps he got sick of it.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : As for Aaron's radio show, sounds like he just didn't want to do it and they took too much of his time. Was only supposed to be 10 minutes.
Smokey (26-Aug) : Don't worry, be WR happy !
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : WR!!
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : LeRoy Butler and Finley want TT to add a WR. Silverstein wrote a piece on it, including Rison mention. Let's get this!
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : The WHY is the big story, but that hasn't come out yet.
Zero2Cool (25-Aug) : noooooooooooooooooooo!
Zero2Cool (25-Aug) : Aaron is done? Why????
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : If you liked "Tuesday's with Aaron" he's not doing it this year. He's done.
Zero2Cool (23-Aug) : Tolzien being evaluated for concussion. What?
hardrocker950 (23-Aug) : wow... what a joke
dhazer (23-Aug) : Cheese heads are everywhere donot be sureprised ifor we are louder
Zero2Cool (23-Aug) : And you're wearing a Ben jersey... sad!
dhazer (23-Aug) : Hello from Heinz field
dhazer (23-Aug) : Anyone else going to be at the big ketchup bottle of Heinz Field
Mucky Tundra (23-Aug) : TEBOW!
