Packers Cuts Tracker 2018: Live news, rumors, & updates on cut-down weekend

New, comments

Keep it here for all of the news about the Packers’ cuts to get down to 53.

NFL: Green Bay Packers-Training Camp Jim Matthews-USA TODAY Sports

The Green Bay Packers have to reduce their active roster by 37 players this weekend, cutting down from 90 to 53 by 4:00 PM Eastern on Saturday to meet the NFL’s deadline. General manager Brian Gutekunst is at the helm of this process for the first time, having served under Ted Thompson for years, and his approach to roster construction will be an intriguing storyline for Packers fans to watch.

Throughout Friday and Saturday, keep your browsers locked here as we bring you news from throughout the weekend.

First, here are a few quick notes about NFL cuts and the Packers’ roster construction:

  • The trade of Brett Hundley for a draft pick freed up one spot from the full 90-man roster, putting the Packers at 89. That means that the team needs to clear 36 players.
  • The Packers can also place suspended running back Aaron Jones on the reserve/suspended list at the deadline, which removes him from the 53-man roster. That takes the cut number down to 35.
  • Players can be placed on injured reserve in order to help get down to 53 as well. In past years, players put on IR at or before the deadline were not eligible to return during the same season.
  • The Packers have no players on the active/Physically Unable to Perform list. This means that they cannot put any players on reserve/PUP at the deadline to free up active roster spots.

Here we go.
