Signed with the Chargers, already. I guess they saw the same in him as we've been seeing around here.

I really don't understand the move. They can put him on PUP or even IR so he wouldn't have counted against the 53. I just don't see why one of those 80 or whatever off season roster spots is so important that you have to cut a guy who has shown so much potential.

Really, well I guess the failed physical thing was just a reason to let him go.

I really don't understand this move now, Smith performed well when he was in the lineup, looks like Zero might have hit on it this time, Packers want to get bigger and stronger,

Smith didn't fit the mold.

side note......After D.J. Smith plays 6 years in the NFL, and leads the team he plays for in tackles for that time, and misses only 2 games in that same period, then the moronic Smith > Hawk post can be made.

currently GB has 67 players on the roster. (If I counted correctly.)
They had 8 via draft. That's 75.
They add 5 undrafted players. That's 80.
They still have 10 more positions available for TC.

Smith was not released to make room for anyone else. They released him to make room for Jones payday. Confused

I can only tell you what they told us, and that’s they needed to create some space for things they thought was coming. From our perspective, he was ahead of schedule. If you watched the rehab and the conditioning, he was running and lifting. It was curious to us what caused this.

But the phone has been ringing off the hook for him. They did say there’s a possibility that once he’s healthy, that they could bring him back. They just indicated there was something they needed to create some space for.

DJ Smith was making 555,000 you don't really save anything by cutting him since you have to sign a guy to take his place anyways. Cutting him for $$ makes even less sense.

I didn't like the move.

I didn't mean they would free up cap room by releasing him. It frees up on field reps for Jones who is getting paid to pay.

I was neved high on Smith anyway. I saw a player that was decent depth but nothing more. Not a big loss, even if making the big assumption that he returns to pre injury form.
