Packers Release RB Kapri Bibbs

Kapri Bibbs didn’t last very long with the Packers. The team released the veteran running back Friday, a source told Field Yates of ESPN.com.

Green Bay claimed Bibbs off waivers from the Redskins in December of last year, and he spent the end of the season with them. In two games with the Packers, Bibbs carried the ball one time for two yards and caught three passes for 13 yards. In 2016 with the Broncos and 2017 with the Redskins Bibbs occasionally flashed, but has never gotten consistent playing time.

In ten games with Washington last year before being cut, Bibbs had 20 carries for 101 yards and three touchdowns, with 13 receptions for 102 yards and another touchdown. The Packers didn’t announce a corresponding roster move, so they currently have one spot open on their 90-man roster. A move could come later this weekend or on Monday.

The Packers have Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams atop the depth chart, and just drafted Dexter Williams in the sixth round. Bibbs was no higher than fourth, so he was never going to make much of an impact. He’s a decent pass-catcher out of the backfield and has always played special teams, so he should resurface somewhere at some point.

    Jones had awesome yards per carry the last 2 years (his only years). How about he gets more carries per game?

    I have a new cat. I’m going to name him Mr. Bibbs. Nothing to do with the conversation. I just wanted to share that.
