And in Expected Packers News…

Justin Harrell is no longer on the team.

Justin Harrell has said his goodbyes to coaches and teammates as his disappointing four-year tenure in Green Bay officially ended.

Reached by phone Thursday, the defensive lineman said that the Packers have released him.

“Basically, I’m just going to head back, keep working out, keep working on my knee and see what happens,” Harrell said. “I have no bad things to say about Green Bay. It was a great place while I was there. With the frustration of the fans and articles written about you, it’ll be good to come back (and get a new start). Green Bay’s where I’ve been for four years. I wouldn’t change a thing other than the injuries.”

On Wednesday, Harrell had his knee checked out by doctors and, he said, they cleared him to practice. He tore his ACL in the Packers’ season opener last year and has been rehabbing since. After meeting with doctors, Harrell was prepared to take it day by day and work his way back to full tilt here in Green Bay.

Today, the team decided to move on. By doing so, the Packers save $1.25 million of cap money. In four years, the 2007 first round pick played just 14 games and had zero sacks.

If there was one bad top draft pick in Ted Thompson’s era as Packers’ General Manager, this is it. Harrell was held back by almost non-stop injury which never allowed him to see him play let alone see any potential within him.

He hopes another NFL team will call him in the coming days.  That’s possible, but he’s ripe to spend a year on someone’s Practice Squad…if he stays healthy.
