For personal reasons that I can't divulge here, this pleases me like you wouldn't believe. This just in from Packers.com:
Julius Curry, S
Tony Donald, TE
Carl Ford, WR
Steve Josue, LB
Kelvin Kight, WR
Scott McBrien, QB
Scottie Vines, WR
Scott Wells, C
Shockmain Davis, WR (fibula)
TERMINATED, INJURY SETTLEMENT (1)
Chukie Nwokorie, DE (hamstring)
Tim Couch, QB
Curtis Fuller, S
Kenny Holmes, DE
Tyrone Rogers, DE
Larry Smith, DT
Chris Watson, CB
This means both punters, 3rd-round pick B.J. Sander and just-signed vet Bryan Barker (neither of whom were very good in preseason) will be kept on the active roster.
It also means that Mike McKenzie has no roster spot. Because the Pack never cut him, that should put him into "failed to report" status...and the team doesn't have to pay him one damn dime. Hooray for non-guaranteed NFL money!
Other notes: Grey Ruegamer, a center I really like, beat draft pick Scott Wells for the honor of backing up Mike Flanagan at center.
And Ashwaubenon native Aaron Stecker (NewOrleansSaints.com) made it onto the Saints' final roster, too. Woohoo!
(EDIT: DrewDeuce, I reiterate: SCREW Tim Couch.)

I certainly wish Tim luck, but he did stink with GB this pre-season so I certainly understand.

|Geez, quite the fall from grace for young Timmy.|
I'd be surprised if there isn't someone out there who'd take him as a back-up as long as he's willing to accept back-up wages. I mean if Kordell can find a job.....
For what its worth, the Eagles binned Levens, but that was the only cut of any real note. Unless you count McCoo, but you don't really do you?

|I'm just upset that the Packers have crap for punters. I mean, TWO of 'em? If we could graft the legs off one and onto the other, I'd understand. But now we're left with two punters who can't punt (well). |
