The Green Bay Packers have released veteran wide receiver Robert Ferguson. Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations, made the announcement Friday.
"We thank Robert for everything he has given to the Packers," Thompson said. "In addition to his contributions on the playing field, Robert has been a positive influence in our locker room and a good teammate. As with any veteran player who has been here, we wanted to make this move early because this gives him the best chance to catch on with another organization in the NFL."
The Packers' second-round pick in the 2001 NFL Draft, Ferguson played in 60 games for Green Bay over the past six seasons, catching 116 passes for 1,577 yards and 12 touchdowns.
