The Green Bay Packers released special teamer and backup tight end Ryan Taylor and promoted practice squad wide receiver Kevin Dorsey to the active roster.
Taylor, a seventh round p;ick in the 2011 draft, showed little production this year on special teams, amassing only one tackle. On offense, he had only 10 snaps all season, all last week in the Vikings game as the Packers were running out the clock.
The Packers most likely decided to add Kevin Dorsey (a seventh round pick in the 2013 Draft) from the practice squad because of Jarrett Boykin’s injury. It seems to be lingering longer than the Packers expected.
Cornerback Tay Glover-Wright, A 6’0″ 175 rookie cornerback was signed to take Dorsey’s spot on the Practice Squad. Glover-Wright was an undrafted rookie in the Atlanta Falcon’s camp this year before being released on August 25th. Glover-Wright is another QB/wide receiver turned defensive back out of Utah State.
#Packers have signed WR Kevin Dorsey to the active roster, per a source with access to the NFL transaction wire. Takes Taylor’s spot.
