GREEN BAY, Wis. (WSAW) - The Packers are releasing tight end Jace Sternberger, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.

Sternberger was a third-round draft pick in 2019. He played in 18 games in the last two seasons. In 2020, he recorded 12 receptions and 114 yards. He was serving a two-game suspension due to a substance-abuse violation for the first two games of this season.

The move leaves the Packers with four tight ends on the roster.
