Packers kickers Crosby and Tavecchio have some new competition in town.
The Green Bay Packers have officially released six players as of today, with two more names added to the list of reported cuts from yesterday: RB Angelo Pease and DT Gilbert Peña. They also made a somewhat surprising move in adding kicker Zach Ramirez to the roster. All transactions are official according to the official Packers.com website.
With the exception of Graham Harrell, all six of the released players were undrafted rookie free agents. Pease didn’t see any time with the offense during Friday’s preseason game, while Peña was only in for a handful of defensive snaps. The Packers still have to trim their roster down by ten more players by Tuesday, August 27th, since they added a player in Ramirez.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Graham Harrell is out of a job as of tonight, after fellow backup Vince Young impressed enough Friday night to warrant Graham's release in the team's first round of cuts, reports Adam Schefter of ESPN.
Vince Young is back in the NFL as the backup quarterback of the Green Bay Packers.
Young, 30, was signed to a contract by the Packers on Aug. 5 after sitting out the 2012 season. The Packers will pay Young $715,000 for the season under the terms of that contract.

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- The results would indicate that the Green Bay Packers just released their most accurate field-goal kicker. Despite making 86 percent of his attempts in training camp, the Packers parted ways Monday with Giorgio Tavecchio.

Backup quarterback Vince Young showed improvement against the Seahawks
1) The O-line will open more holes when Aaron Rodgers, Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson are in the game, but the Hogs they’ll never be. The starters are among the smallest and least physically talented units in the league. And while effort and grit are admirable traits, they’ll only get you so far at this level...
The Panthers offense has one option, that's Cam Newton. The Packers offense has Rodgers, receivers and now Eddie Lacy to threaten a running game. While I like Cam Newton's running ability, he needs a lot more help before he starts to move past Rodgers in fantasy.

There are few coaches in the history of the Green Bay Packers who have the resume Mike McCarthy does.
An 80-42 regular season record (.656 winning percentage), franchise best 15-1 record in 2011, two trips to the NFC Championship Game and a Super Bowl title are just a few of the highlights of McCarthy’s seven year run as coach.
He has handled the incredibly high expectations...
