Green Bay Packers Expected To Release Justin Harrell, Brady Poppinga

Though nothing is official yet (a phrase I am sick of having to use), it seems all but certain that both outside linebacker Brady Poppinga and defensive tackle/end Justin Harrell are going to be released by the Green Bay Packers. ESPN's Jason Wilde revealed the news on twitter.

This comes as absolutely no surprise. Poppinga had no chance to start this season and the team needed the money that they would save by cutting him. Justin Harrell's low cap number of $650k made some think that he would be given another chance, but he has been an immense disappointment in his time in Green Bay, and he is due a large roster bonus in the coming days.

Despite my thought processes being completely illogical, this has gotten my hopes up about the prospects of keeping James Jones and Cullen Jenkins. Really, I'm just grasping at straws.
