Packers release OL Greg Van Roten

According to, the Packers have released Offensive Lineman Greg Van Roten. Van Roten, an undrafted free agent out of Penn, has been in the league for two years now (both in Green Bay), yet has played in just a total of 10 games (7 in 2012, 3 in 2013) due to injuries. 

For the last two years, Van Roten has made a decent annual salaray of $480k, which was scheduled to go up to $570k for the upcoming 2014 season. So yea, I guess this is a good move by the Packers. They're not getting anything out of the guy, so they might as well just cut him to save a little extra cash.

I'm a little surprised. He started the season as the backup at center and guard, before suffering a season ending injury. They must like what they've seen from the rookies Taylor and Tretter, and it's hard to count on a guy who has trouble staying healthy.
