Where Are They Now? Recent Packers Released

Probably every Green Bay Packer fan who watched the first two preseason games was hoping or expecting they would keep RB Tyrell Sutton. Instead he was released, and claimed by Carolina. RB Kregg Lumpkin was added to the practice squad. Maybe they preferred Lumpkin after all. They had to know someone would claim Sutton if they tried to slip him through waivers.

The bigger surprise was the release of S Anthony Smith. He had a great preseason, along with a couple dumb 15 yard penalties, but it seemed like he had the job as the top backup safety in hand. Instead he was released and claimed by St. Louis.

LB Danny Lansanah wasn't outstanding, but he was solid this preseason. He had at least one blown play in pass coverage, but at least one devastating hit too. He declined an invite to the Packers practice squad, and instead signed onto the practice squad in Miami.

C Duke Preston, along with S Anthony Smith, were the two veteran free agent signings this offseason. Neither earned a spot on the Packers 53 man roster. Preston was actually released a couple weeks ago. Just like Smith, Preston too wound up on another team's 53 man roster. He's way down deep in the depth chart in Dallas.
