GREEN BAY, Wis. (WSAW) -All NFL rosters had to be trimmed to 53 players by 3 P.M. on Saturday. The Packers cut four wide receivers, the most notable of them being former UW-Whitewater standout Jake Kumerow. The 28-year old played in 14 games last season and was thought to be Green Bay’s fourth receiver going into the season.

On the offensive line, Alex Light was a contender for a backup tackle spot, but the Packers waived the third year lineman. Green Bay also surprisingly released one of their sixth-round picks this year, center Jake Hanson out of Oregon.

Players not claimed on waivers after being cut can be re-signed to the practice squad, which has expanded from 12 to 16 players this season because of COVID.

The full list of players cut today is below:

  • CB DaShaun Amos
  • LB Krys Barnes
  • TE Evan Baylis
  • WR Reggie Begelton
  • S Henry Black
  • T Cody Conway
  • RB Damarea Crockett
  • LB Tipa Galeai
  • C Jake Hanson
  • G Zack Johnson
  • WR Jake Kumerow
  • T John Leglue
  • T/G Alex Light
  • FB John Lovett
  • DL Willington Previlon
  • LB Greg Roberts
  • CB Stanford Samuels
  • LB Delontae Scott
  • WR Darrius Shepherd
  • WR Malik Turner
  • RB Dexter Williams
  • LB Tim Williams

Green Bay also placed LB Curtis Bolton on the reserve/physically unable to perform list, placed rookie guard Simon Stepaniak and RB Patrick Taylor on the reserve/non-football injury list, and waived/injured DL Treyvon Hester and CB Will Sunderland.
