Preseason star Jason Chery among Packers' final cuts
Wide receiver Jason Chery made some spectacular plays on special teams in preseason but he didn’t make it past the final cut for the Green Bay Packers. Quarterback Graham Harrell was also trimmed along with tight end Spencer Havner, who had a motorcycle accident in the offseason that drew scrutiny.
The Packers also released punter Chris Bryan, tackle Chris Campbell, cornerback D.J. Clark, center/guard Evan Dietrich-Smith, wide receiver Charles Dillon, linebacker Robert Francois, tackle Breno Giacomini, linebacker Alex Joseph, safety Anthony Levine, running back Kregg Lumpkin, linebacker Cyril Obiozor, linebacker Maurice Simpkins, defensive end Ronald Talley, nose tackle Anthony Toribio, wide receiver Chastin West, wide receiver Patrick Williams and defensive end Jarius Wynn.
The Packers placed offensive tackle Allen Barbre and safety Will Blackmon on injured reserve.
