Holy shit. He will play in the NFL somewhere. Thank you KGB for some fantastic memories. You are a class act, sir.

Justin Harrell is playing football again. Hot damn. Since you are bringing your family, bring some of that talent, too!

I will miss KGB.

Wow, best of wishes to him. I always had a lot of respect for the positive attitude he displayed on and off the field. I hope the future brings him many a good thing.

1st I wish KGB all the best. Thanks for your contributions to the GB franchise.
I will also say that I thought he would be released at the start of the year. That he made is this long shows that Mgmt tried to keep him he just didn't perform like he needed to.

This is just sad news. I think if Cullen Jenkins hadn't gotten injured, KGB would still be here.

I think it's probably because KGB is one of our highest paid players. If he didn't make so much money, he probably wouldn't have been a casualty.

That being said, this allows Jeremy Thompson to not look behind him, and we better see some production from Mr. Harrell.

Really disappointed about this move.. one of the best D-Ends in packer history.. obviously RW is #1..

I'm not saying it's a terrible move, sure it gives us some cap space and what not after resigning rodgers and he really didn't play too much even though he would get the odd sack before jumping the opponents play count in crucial situations..

I'm gonna miss him..

I hope he retires as a packer and i hope we retire #94..
all time gb sack leader

[size=18]Packers Activate DT Harrell, Release DE Gbaja-Biamila [/size]

The Green Bay Packers have activated DT Justin Harrell from the physically unable to perform list and released DE Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila. Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations, announced the transactions Saturday.

Harrell appeared in seven games, including two starts, as a rookie in 2007.

In nine seasons with the Packers, Gbaja-Biamila appeared in 124 career games, including 74 starts. He is the franchise's all-time sacks leader with 741/2, having passed Reggie White (681/2) in 2007.

"We want to thank Kabeer for his contributions to the Green Bay Packers," Thompson said. "During his time here, he has been a big part of our organization and our community. We wish Kabeer and his family well."

In leaving the organization, Gbaja-Biamila issued the following statement: "My nine years as a Green Bay Packer have been a blessing that is beyond words. I thank God for bringing me to this first-class organization and first-class community. During my time here, I've built relationships with a number of people in the Packer family. The front office executives, G.M.s, coaches, past and present players, the enormous support and administrative staff plus the greatest fans in football, all have helped make my time here truly special and I am thankful for that. It has been a very positive experience. I was able to build a family here and grow with a community that I call home. Again, I've been truly blessed. I don't know what my football future holds, but one thing I've realized is that football is more than a game - it's about building relationships and changing lives. One of the commitments I've had throughout my career has been to share the gospel of Jesus Christ and that is something that I intend on doing whether on the field or not. God bless the Green Bay Packers!"

Too bad cause I've never heard a bad word of him as a person. From a busines point it is understandable but he probably had been one of a qb's most feared DE here since Reggie

He will be a good fit elsewhere. Wherever he goes, I'm going to root for him. What a completely classy farewell statement, too. I aspire to that kind of dignity and character.

Something occurred to me. I read where Justin is bringing his extended family to this football game. I read where he was really hoping to be activated for it, proximity etc. Now we got KGB released... I wonder what is going through Justin's head right about now. Many have said that there is a danger of him getting re-injured if coming back too soon. This could be terribly interesting tomorrow afternoon. I would not be a bit surprised to see some truly inspired play out of Justin. I wouldn't be surprised if he got hurt trying to do too much, too soon. I guess what I'm thinking is that there is a double-edged sword aspect to this whole turn of events. I'm sure hoping for the inspired football thing, without the injury thing.
