The Green Bay Packers have waived wide receiver/kick returner Kelvin Kight, linebacker Shawn Morgan and defensive tackle Doug Sims. Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations, announced the moves Tuesday.
Also Tuesday, the team announced it has placed eight players on the exempt/NFLEL injured list: cornerback Chris Day, linebacker John Garrett, wide receiver Jamal Jones, safety Chonn Lacey, guard Joe Quinn, cornerback/safety Art Smith, defensive end Seante Williams and safety Wendell Williams. All eight currently count as roster exemptions.
Kight originally joined the club on waivers from St. Louis in 2004 training camp. Promoted from the practice squad, he spent four regular-season weeks on the active roster, playing at Detroit (Oct. 17) in his NFL debut. Allocated to Frankfurt, Kight spent most of the NFL Europe season on the Galaxy's injured reserve.
Sims posted five tackles (four solo) for the Rhein Fire. Morgan had one sack among 35 tackles (30 solo) for the Hamburg Sea Devils.
