The Green Bay Packers have made some roster changes ahead of the Thursday Night Football game against the Tennessee Titans.
General Manager Brian Gutekunst announced today that the Packers have released wide receiver Amari Rodgers and running back Kylin Hill.
The Amari Rodgers move is not surprising at all. Rodgers was drafted by the Packers in the third round (No. 85 overall) in the 2021 NFL Draft. He played in 26 regular season games and one postseason game and had one start.
Rodgers had eight career receptions for 95 yards in his Green Bay tenure. He was primarily used as a return man for the Special Teams unit and where he had seven career fumbles (5 this season), with two of them being lost (both this season).
As mentioned, if you have been following the Packers, the Rodgers move isn’t surprising. His days were numbered, especially after that lost fumble on Sunday.
Kylin Hill was drafted in the seventh round (No. 256 overall) by the Packers in the 2021 NFL Draft. Hill appeared in 10 games in his two years in Green Bay. Hill had 11 rushes for 31 yards and one reception for five yards in those 10 games.
I will say I am slightly surprised by the Hill move.
