    Ricky Jean Francois is being released by the Packers according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. They gave him a $250,000 signing bonus this offseason as part of a one-year, $2 million deal. Now, 16/17ths of his $1.25 million base salary is wiped off their books.

    Didn't see that one coming. One game made them super happy about the D Line I guess.

    Jean-Francois is a vested veteran. Isn't his salary guaranteed by having been on the week 1 roster?

    I wonder if this means Adams is ready to play, Lowry is 100%, etc.?

    Tex...?

    Tex?

    Maybe his Cowboys will pick up Gunter. That might ease the pain.

    Wait a sec...if they cut Gunter AND Francois, does this mean they've found out that Brooks's concussion is serious, so they're calling up Gilbert?

    Ruh roh.

    Spriggs has a hamstring injury. They could be looking for a Tackle.

    Because he was on the roster Week 1, Ricky Jean Francois can still collect the rest of his $1.25 million base salary via the one-time veteran termination pay rule. The only thing the Packers save on is his weekly roster bonuses, which had $375,000 of the $400,000 left available.

    The Packers worked out three linebackers: Donnie Baggs (Texas A&M) Brooks Ellis (Arkansas) Christian Kuntz (Duquesne)
