The Green Bay Packers have until Monday to cut their roster down from 90 players to 75, but they got a head start on Friday night. The team announced five cuts, and must make 10 more by the deadline on Monday. None of the cuts were truly shocking, but one cut was slightly surprising.

Anthony Hargrove was the highest profile name to make the list of released players. He's serving an eight-game suspension to start the season and won't count against the roster limit, which led most to believe that the team would let him stick around for a while. Apparently, they're not impressed enough with Hargrove to keep him for that long.

The other players released were WR Andrew Brewer, S Micah Pellerin, CB Dion Turner and OT Herb Taylor. None of them were expected to make the roster, and the former three players didn't see much playing time in preseason. Taylor was thrust into action due to injuries and it was apparent that he was not up to the NFL standard on either side of the line.
