Packers Reduce Roster


The Green Bay Packers Sunday announced 11 transactions to reduce their roster in anticipation of the NFL's Tuesday deadline, said Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations.

The team has released linebacker Hannibal Navies and guard Matt O'Dwyer, as well as wide receiver Vince Butler, cornerback Patrick Dendy, linebacker Jeremiah Garrison, guard/tackle Atlas Herrion, tight end Tory Humphrey, running back Derrick Johnese, defensive tackle A.J. Lindsay, wide receiver Chad Lucas and defensive tackle Quintene Newhouse.

Navies, who originally signed as an unrestricted free agent before the 2003 season, had started for the Packers as an outside linebacker each of the last two years.

O'Dwyer, an 11th-year NFL veteran, had signed as an unrestricted free agent this past March.

Herrion spent all of last season on the Packers practice squad. Butler, Dendy, Garrison, Humphrey, Johnese, Lindsay, Lucas and Newhouse all had joined the Packers this past offseason.
