Graham Harrell wasn't the only Green Bay Packer to get a pink slip on Saturday. Reports are coming in from ESPN's Rob Demovsky that the Packers are letting a trio of young wide receivers go:

That makes four cuts so far today, including Harrell's release.

Justin Wilson never really saw much in the way of reps, either in practice or in preseason games. Omarius Hines was used frequently as a backup kick and punt returner, but he was buried on the depth chart at receiver. Alex Gillett was probably the best-looking prospect of the three, and some (including me) thought he had a shot at a spot on the team's practice squad, but it was not meant to be.

We'll continue to update this post with news of additional Packer cuts through the weekend, and keep it here on Tuesday as the roster is officially trimmed down to 75 players.

UPDATEPackers add K Ramirez, cut NT Pena and RB Pease

UPDATE: Packers cut K Tavecchio

UPDATE 8/27, 12:38 PM: DuJuan Harris to go on Injured Reserve (roster sits at 83)
