Packers release G Josh Sitton

Posted Sep 3, 2016

Three-time Pro Bowl guard spent eight seasons in Green Bay

The Green Bay Packers have released G Josh Sitton. The transaction was announced Saturday by Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson.

“We want to thank Josh for his contributions during his time in Green Bay. He has been an important part of the success we have enjoyed on the field,” Thompson said. “While these decisions are never easy, this was done with a focus on what is best for the team and the growth of the offensive line. We wish Josh and his wife, Kristen, all the best in the future.” 

Sitton, originally selected by the Packers in the fourth round (135th overall) of the 2008 NFL Draft out of the University of Central Florida, started 112 of 121 regular-season games and all 13 postseason contests he appeared in for Green Bay over the last eight years. During his time with the Packers, he was named to the Pro Bowl three times (2012, ‘14-15) and also selected second-team All-Pro by The Associated Press three times (2013-15).
