The Green Bay Packers are preparing to field a squad of cut candidates this Thursday against the Kansas City Chiefs. This can only mean one thing: the merciful end to one of the most unwatchable NFL preseasons is almost upon us! With that, we start to break down how the roster is taking shape (including but not limited to the release of Josh Jones, the battle between hopeful backup QB’s DeShone Kizer and Tim Boyle, and a slate of other listener submitted questions about roster predictions).

And it wouldn't be an APC Podcast without a rant of some sort. Given Clay Matthews’ recent comments to’s Michael Silver, it appears we can add one more name to the list of former Packers we weren’t thrilled with the way Green Bay’s front office chose to handle their situation. In recent memory, that list arguably includes Mike Daniels, Jordy Nelson, Micah Hyde, Casey Hayward, and more. Players talk. Agents talk. So we ask, is this just how business is done in the NFL, or is Green Bay — given recent struggles — operating with an inflated sense of self?
