Packers bid Ricky Jean Francois adieu

Panthers claim former Packers CB Ladarius Gunter waive kicker

To make way for Allison on the 53-man roster, the Packers waived Gunter according to the NFL's transaction wire. He did not record an interception in two seasons. Cornerback Ladarius Gunter has been cut to make room for wide receiver Geronimo Allison, who returns to the team after serving a one game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy. And while he was a physical corner, he did not possess top line speed.

The Green Bay Packers released a couple of defensive players on Tuesday.

Jean-Francois played in just 6 defensive snaps (and a single special teams snap) in Sunday's 17-9 win over the Seattle Seahawks.

However, buried deep on the cornerback depth chart, Gunter's number was pretty easy to call for cutting by the Packers.

ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported the roster move. He signed with the Packers as a free agent in the offseason; a one year, $2 million dollar deal.

Meanwhile the Packers offense gets back Allison, who was signed off the practice squad last October and totaled 202 yards with a pair of touchdowns in his rookie season.

With five defensive linemen now on the roster, the Packers seem set, but given the changes that Thompson has made recently, nothing is out of the realm of possibility as we move ahead.
