Even though the Green Bay Packers trimmed their roster down to 53 players on Saturday, the maneuvering may not be over.
NFL teams can put claims on players that were placed on waivers yesterday until 11:00 a.m. CT today. If the Packers were to do so, they’d have to make room by subsequently releasing players currently on their roster.
Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel explains the process, saying, “If the Packers put in claims for two players, they could prioritize the claims and inform the NFL that they want just one.”
Quarterback stands as one position the Packers may address after parting ways with Vince Young on Saturday.
Waivers is not the only way to add players, however. As usual, the Packers could make a trade or sign a free agent at any time.
There’s been no word if the Packers plan on signing running back Joe McKnight, who they had in for a workout on Saturday. Like any other player, the Packers would have clear room on their roster if they were to sign McKnight.
The Packers can also begin putting together their eight-man practice squad at 11:00 a.m.
General manager Ted Thompson is expected to address the media on Sunday. Typically his press conferences are streamed live on the team’s official website at Packers.com, although the team has not updated their online live webcast schedule.
