The Green Bay Packers got their first look at the incoming rookie class this past week, including a three-day glimpse at several tryout players. However, talent entering the league means talent has to flow out, and the Packers are no exception. According to the Green Bay Press-Gazette's Wes Hodkiewicz, the team has released defensive lineman Luther Robinson.
Robinson, an undrafted rookie a year ago, began his career on the Packers' practice squad. He earned a promotion to the active roster in early October and made an immediate impact, tipping a Christian Ponder pass to Julius Peppers for a 49-yard interception return for a touchdown. However, Robinson played little outside of that game, ultimately ended up on injured reserve later in the year.
Robinson's spot on the roster may have been compromised by Green Bay's selection of Christian Ringo as well as the return of 2014 third-round pick Khyri Thornton. The Packers currently have 10 defensive linemen on the roster.
