Packers to release Ricky Jean Francois

Packers to release Ricky Jean Francois

Gone is cornerback LaDarius Gunter, who was officially released on Tuesday to make room for receiver Geronimo Allison.

With new additions Kevin King and Davon House at cornerback in Green Bay, the team felt he could be cut to bring back the talented young wide receiver, Allison.

The Green Bay Packers have signed G/T Adam Pankey to the active roster from the practice squad, released DT Ricky Jean Francois and signed G Darrell Greene to the practice squad.

Francois played in only three games as a rookie but wound up clocking in full 16-game seasons over the next three years with the 49ers.

Gunter rescued the Packers last season when Sam Shields was lost early with a concussion.

Gunter, who signed with the Packers as an undrafted free agent in 2015, appeared in 24 games for the Packers. ESPN.com's Rob Demovsky reported this morning that the Packers promoted guard/tackle Adam Pankey to the teams roster.

With five defensive linemen now on the roster, the Packers seem set, but given the changes that Thompson has made recently, nothing is out of the realm of possibility as we move ahead.

Jean Francois signed with the team in the off-season for one year at $2 million. Green Bay will have another animal to tame in Week 2.

Green Bay is preparing to travel to Atlanta Sunday to take on the Falcons in their stadium-opening game, much like the Packers did last season when they traveled to Minnesota to take on the Vikings on the night they opened US Bank Stadium.
