The Packers have waived offensive lineman Greg Van Roten, according to Brian McIntyre (via Twitter). Van Roten had been on the books for a minimum salary in 2014, with his free agency scheduled for 2015. The Packers won’t be on the hook for any dead money by cutting him.
Van Roten, who will turn 24 later this month, spent most of the 2013 season on injured reserve, having been placed on IR by Green Bay in mid-October due to a foot injury. He was active for the first three games of the Packers’ season.
The Pennsylvania alum will have to clear waivers before becoming eligible for unrestricted free agency.
