In their final cuts of the 2012 roster, the Green Bay Packers released 14 offensive players compared to just four from the defensive side of the ball. The final cut list included six players who had NFL experience, two who had five or more years playing in the NFL and now the Green Bay Packers have the roster set for the championship seasons to continue.

The Green Bay Packers released from the offensive side of the squad: Wide Receiver Dale Moss who had played just one season of college football at South Dakota State, Running Back from the University of Southern California and listed as a rookie Marc Tyler, Guard Greg Van Roten who played for Pennsylvania during the 2011 college football season, Tackle Shea Wells the six foot five 305 pound lineman was a starter fro Delaware last year, Brandon Bostick a six foot three inch tight end from Newberry College, Full Back Nic Cooper from Winston Salem State, Seventh round draft pick tackle Andrew Datko from Florida State, Center Tommie Draneim out of San Diego State, Curenski Gilleylen who played wide receiver at the University of Nebraska, Wide Receiver Tori Gurley who last played football for the University of South Carolina and now has been signed by the Minnesota Vikings to be placed on their practice squad, the last rookie released by the Green Bay Packers from the offense was Quarterback B.J. Coleman out of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, who was quickly signed by the Green Bay Packers to be placed on the practice squad.

The roster cuts continued from the Green Bay Packer offensive with three players who had NFL experience. Guard/Tackle Reggie Wells, Reggie had ten years of professional football experience and the six foot four 318 pound lineman had played college football at Clarion, the next two offensive players with NFL experience were Wide Receiver Diondre Borel with one year in the NFL after being drafted by the Green Bay Packers in 2011, Center/Guard Sampson Genus had one year of NFL experience being signed as a undrafted free agent by Green Bay in 2011 after playing college football at South Florida.

The Packers had spent most the the 2012 draft to fill in gaps on the defensive side of the line of scrimmage and only four of the final roster released players were from the Green Bay Packers defense. Safety Anthony Levine who was on the Green Bay Packer's practice squad last season and had played for Tennessee State, Rookie Corner Back Otis Merrill from Illinois State, Defensive Tackle Daniel Muir who was with the Indianapolis Colts last season and had five years of NFL experience, Defensive End Lawrence Guy who had one year of professional football experience and was from Arizona State were the four released defensive players.

The Green Bay Packers had some tough choices in this final roster reduction, however the front office and coaching staff have the final 53 man roster set and it is time to get ready for some football.
