Defensive end Anthony Hargrove, already facing an eight-game suspension for his role in the Saints bounty pool, has been released by the Green Bay Packers.
The NFL has said the Saints' bounty program paid defensive players improper cash bonuses for hits that injured opponents from 2009 through 2011.
The 29-year-old Hargrove has denied NFL accusations that he lied to league investigators. Hargrove, with the Saints from 2009-2010, played last season with Seattle. Green Bay signed the 6-foot-3, 287-pound Hargrove on March 29. He was suspended by the NFL on May 2.
The Packers on Friday also released wide receiver Andrew Brewer, safety Micah Pellerin, offensive tackle Herb Taylor and cornerback Dion Turner.

WHO NEEDS TECHNOLOGY?
Packers tight end D.J. Williams said he has come back looking stronger this year in training camp because he wrestled cows during the offseason.
With the departure of former starting safety Charlie Peprah, who was released in a very similar manner to former inside linebacker Brandon Chillar for failing his physical at the start of training camp in 2010, all eyes now look towards Charles Woodson, MD Jennings and Jerron McMillian to see which ends up being the starting safety opposite Morgan Burnett.
Only a couple of problems...
Packers D-lineman Mike Daniels
Remember my post yesterday about three players raising eyebrows at Packers training camp?
Well, those players might already be yesterday’s news. The new eyebrow-raiser at camp is Mike Daniels.
Rob Demovsky of the Green Bay Press Gazette says Daniels has gotten plenty of snaps, especially in Dom Capers’ dime package. Like they do in...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It wasn't quite a Lambeau Leap, but Packers wide receiver Tori Gurley did the next best thing during Day 4 of Packers training camp.
Practicing across the street from Lambeau Field at the team's outdoor facility, Ray Nitschke Field, Gurley got up-close and personal with a few of the approximately 2,000 fans in attendance.
Gurley, Green Bay's tallest...
GREEN BAY, Wis. It was almost too easy. Aaron Rodgers and the Packers' high-scoring, pass-first, multi-threat offense were nearly unstoppable throughout most of last season. Rodgers seemed capable of executing Green Bay's scheme while methodically spreading his passes around to whichever receiver he wanted. At times, the ease with which he did so made it appear as if Rodgers...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- When the alarm begins to sound inside Donald Driver's college dorm room, his home during training camp, the 37-year-old Packers wide receiver still has the motivation after 13 NFL seasons not hit the snooze button. That might not seem like much, but to Driver, it means everything.
For Driver, it's a sign that he still has the energy to show up for a drill...
Green Bay Packers linebacker Erik Walden was suspended for one game by the NFL on Tuesday as a result of an arrest last November. Walden was charged following a dispute with his girlfriend, and he pleaded no contest to misdemeanor disorderly conduct charges. He avoided jail time, but the league decided to punish him for what it considered a violation of the Personal Conduct Policy...
The NFL has suspended Green Bay Packers linebacker Erik Walden for the regular-season opener for violating the league's personal conduct policy.
The league announced the punishment Tuesday and said Walden would not be paid for the Sept. 9 game against San Francisco.
In February, Walden reached a deferred judgment agreement to resolve a disorderly conduct-domestic abuse charge...
While it’s probably unfair to compare Mike Daniels to Mike Neal, that won’t stop some fans from making the analogy after the rookie from Iowa left Tuesday’s practice with a groin and/or knee injury. Neal has played in only 10 games since joining the Packers in 2010. Daniels, whose durability was questioned by scouts prior [...]

First let’s get to the chicks! This may have been a certain media star Jen Lada in front of us… best view of the day folks.
Jen Lada is smaller than Shaky Smithson (it’s not even that close!)
Here are our (in no particular order) non media filtered unbiased observations...
Davon House continues to make headlines, this time as he supplants Jarrett Bush as the third cornerback for Tuesday's training camp practice. That and more in this quick-hitting practice wrap-up.
