Packers Roster Cuts Tracker 2017: News and details on the 53-man deadline

Join APC as we follow along with the roster cuts all weekend long.

NFL: Green Bay Packers-OTA Mark Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

With training camp and the preseason schedule now complete, NFL teams have another deadline looming in a few short hours. At 4:00 PM Eastern time, each of the 32 teams in the league must cut their active rosters back from 90 players to 53.

For some teams, including the Green Bay Packers, the cuts are already underway. The Packers started the day have 87 players on the roster, and with the expected addition of Ahmad Brooks, they will need to find a way to get to 52 in order to officially sign him.

Regardless of their number of seasons in the league, all players released between now and the deadline will be subject to waivers, which will process at 12 Noon Eastern on Sunday. At that time, teams will begin putting their practice squads together.

Here is what we know about the Packers’ cuts so far, and be sure to keep it locked here for updates throughout the weekend.
