The Green Bay Packers have made seven additional roster moves Tuesday afternoon to reach the NFL-mandated limit of 65 players in advance of the 3 p.m. (CDT) deadline, GM/Head Coach Mike Sherman announced.
Fourth-year defensive tackle Steve Warren was the most prominent name among the six players who were released. Fellow defensive linemen Eric Powell, Cullen Jenkins and Terdell Sands also were waived, along with safety Jacoby Shepherd and offensive tackle Reggie Coleman, who was waived/injured.
Rookie nose tackle James Lee, a fifth-round pick out of Oregon State, was placed on season-ending injured reserve due to leg pain that first was diagnosed on July 24.
Warren, a third-round draft choice out of Nebraska in 2000, played in 25 games overall, with no starts, spending the entire 2001 season on reserve/physically unable to perform following a quadriceps tear suffered late in 2000. He returned to play in 12 games in 2002, posting 19 tackles (10 unassisted), one quarterback sack, one forced fumble and being credited with 2 passes defensed.
The Packers' roster now is at 73 players, which includes eight NFL Europe exemptions.
