Packers Final* 53-Man Roster

With today's 22 players released, the Packers are officially down to 53 men on the roster. But note that this roster still may change drastically by the time the team takes the field against the 49ers.


Well, if you're like us you've been following the Green Bay Packers closely today as they trimmed the roster down to 53 players. A few surprises popped up, as the team has decided to go with 23 offensive players, 27 defensive players, and the usual 3 specialists. With the cuts in the rear-view mirror, here is the 53-man roster as it sits now, Saturday evening.

Tight Ends 4 Jermichael Finley, Brandon Bostick, Andrew Quarless, Ryan Taylor
Offensive Linemen 8 David Bakhtiari, Josh Sitton, Evan Dietrich-Smith, T.J. Lang, Don Barclay, Marshall Newhouse, Lane Taylor, Greg Van Roten

As expected, our prediction was way off. How did you do?

Now, expect the Packers to be looking into other options at quarterback or running back over the next few days. We know Joe McKnight has or will eventually work out for the Packers this weekend, and it seems reasonable to expect that some quarterbacks may come in as well. But until then, this is how the roster sets up.
