Green Bay Packers Release LB Chase Thomas

The Green Bay Packers released linebacker Chase Thomas on Monday, according to the league's transaction wire.

Thomas was signed to a futures contract in January, but lasted only two three weeks into the team's offseason program.

The Packers may have felt they had sufficient depth at the outside linebacker position after drafting Carl Bradford in the recently completed NFL Draft and signing two more—Adrian Hubbard and Jayrone Elliot—as undrafted free agents.

After the subtraction of Thomas and the addition of 12 undrafted free agents, the Packers roster is at 87 players, leaving spots open for potential free agents or tryout players.

Thomas was a productive players in college as a senior in 2012 but has yet to play in a regular season in the NFL.

Does the count of 87 include the yet-unsigned 9 draft choices? Either way, I think the WRs not named Nelson, Cobb or Boykin on the roster prior to the draft should be concerned about the possibility of joining Chase Thomas on the waiver wire prior to the opening of TC in July.
