Packers release fullback Aaron Ripkowski as part of final cuts Green Bay Packers Hats , per report Once an understudy to Green Bay Packers’ folk-herokly become a fan favorite in his own right. But at least for the time being, Green Bay is cutting ties with the fourth-year player.As has been noted in the past, the role of the fullback has been diminishing across the NFL. The Packers were one of very few teams to utilize the position in a prominent role. However, even last season, there were signs that Green Bay was also beginning to move away from its traditional use of the fullback. Ripkowski was called on for just five carries and seven receptions in 2017, a far cry from his 34 carries in 2016. His offensive snap count also was significantly reduced by over 100 (288-180) in that two-year span. The release of Ripkowski in the final year of his rookie contract paves the way for an extra tight end to make the final roster. At the time of this post, Emanuel Byrd and Robert Tonyan were still safe from the cut down and each could play a role as an H-back player for the Packers in Ripkowski’s absence. Also adding intrigue is that Joe Kerridge currently remains a Packer. The third-year fullback has bounced between the active roster and practice squad over the past two seasons Green Bay Packers Womens Hoodie , but also contributes on special teams.It was noted earlier today that Quinten Rollins suffered a hamstring injury and could pose a difficult challenge to the Packers’ front office if they value his versatility in the secondary enough to place him on returnable injured reserve. In that case, Ripkowski could be a strong bet to find his way back on the roster after injury placements sort themselves out. Still, there could be some interest in Ripkowski from teams around the league that still employ the fullback position.In the scenario that Green Bay does not retain Ripkowski, the Packers are in a curious position in terms of their backfield for week one. With Aaron Jones serving a suspension and Devante Mays and Joel Bouagnon released earlier today, it leaves Jamaal Williams and Ty Montgomery as the only two sure-fire players to be in the backfield. While Kerridge and late pickup LeShun Daniels have not been mentioned in the reported releases as of yet, it would appear the Packers could be on the lookout for another running back casualty in final cuts around the NFL.Stay tuned to our Roster Cuts Tracker to follow along with all of the Packers’ moves this weekend.Cheese Curds, 8/24: Packers’ tackles critical for 2018, Adams reaches out to fan There are two positions on the Green Bay Packers’ roster that appear to have a tremendous dropoff between the starter(s) and the backups: quarterback — as we all saw in 2017 after Aaron Rodgers’ injury — and offensive tackle. Just about every other position appears to be able to at least function mostly capably if a starter gets hurt. However Womens Customized Green Bay Packers Jerseys , given the performance of the Packers’ backup tackles in the preseason, there are few if any players save for Rodgers whose availability is more critical than David Bakhtiari and Bryan Bulaga.2017 saw that pan out early as well, as the Packers were at one time down to their fifth and sixth options at the position — both converted guards in Lane Taylor and Justin McCray. Yes, the Packers were able to win a game with those two starting, but it was over a Chicago Bears team who was starting Mike Glennon for the last time.Perhaps the only other player who can make a case for being more critical to the team’s fortunes on an individual health basis is wide receiver Davante Adams, who already has thrilled Packers fans in very limited snaps this preseason. While on the verge of breaking into the elite group of NFL receivers, Adams showed this week how much he appreciates fans of him and his team in a fun interaction with one of them in particular.After checking out today’s curds, be sure to keep it here at APC for full coverage of tonight’s Packers-Raiders preseason game.Packers' season could hinge on health of two tackles | Packersnews.comI'll argue that the season WILL hinge on the health of their tackles.
