Green Bay has a highly unusual roster composition after the deadline.

NFL: Green Bay Packers-Practice Green Bay Press Gazette-USA TODAY NETWORK

On Saturday, several hours after the deadline at 4:00 PM Eastern, the Green Bay Packers finally revealed their initial 53-man roster.

The team has a remarkably unorthodox makeup from a positional breakdown standpoint, keeping ten offensive linemen, four tailbacks, and seven cornerbacks.

Without further ado, here is the official 53-man roster.


Quarterbacks (2): Aaron Rodgers, Brett Hundley

Running Backs (5): Ty Montgomery, Aaron Ripkowski, Jamaal Williams, Aaron Jones, Devante Mays

Wide Receivers (5): Jordy Nelson, Davante Adams, Randall Cobb, Trevor Davis, Jeff Janis
(Geronimo Allison suspended for week 1)

Tight Ends (3): Martellus Bennett, Lance Kendricks, Richard Rodgers

Offensive Linemen (10): David Bakhtiari, Lane Taylor, Corey Linsley, Jahri Evans, Bryan Bulaga, Jason Spriggs, Kyle Murphy, Don Barclay, Lucas Patrick, Justin McCray


Defensive Linemen (6): Mike Daniels, Kenny Clark, Dean Lowry, Ricky Jean Francois, Christian Ringo, Montravius Adams

Outside Linebackers (4): Clay Matthews, Nick Perry, Jayrone Elliott, Kyler Fackrell

Inside Linebackers (3): Jake Ryan, Blake Martinez, Joe Thomas

Cornerbacks (7): Davon House, Damarious Randall, Quinten Rollins, Kevin King, Josh Hawkins, LaDarius Gunter, Lenzy Pipkins

Safeties (5): Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, Morgan Burnett, Josh Jones, Kentrell Brice, Marwin Evans

OLs Kofi Amichia, Thomas Evans, Geoff Gray, Robert Leff, Adam Pankey

Reserve/Injured: FB Joe Kerridge, LB David Talley

UPDATE Sunday 9/3: The Packers lost two players — Taysom Hill and Brian Price — to waivers. They also claimed OLB Chris Odom on waivers from the Atlanta Falcons, but have not yet revealed the corresponding roster move that makes room for him on the 53-man roster.
