“The Butcher” has been cut; Ryan, too

by on Sep.01, 2008, under Roster Moves

Linebacker Abdul Hodge and punter Jon Ryan are finding themselves looking for work on Labor Day. Both Packers veterans were cut Monday, while Green Bay signed a needed long snapper and a new punter.

Replacing Hodge and Ryan on the Packers 53-man roster is punter Derrick Frost and long snapper Brett Goode. The Packers had a need for a long snapper due to the season ending injury suffered by J.J. Jansen in the team’s last pre-season game. The switch at punter is more of a surprise, as the sometimes inconsistent Ryan had steadily improved through the pre-season.
