I'm going to go with John Kuhn. Pickett will make it through the year, then retire after the Superbowl.

JJ is a valuable commodity, especially now with DD and GJ gone. As for Tramon, this will be his comeback year. If that arm's ever gonna be healed it is now. Otherwise, it is what it is.

If there was a bona fide FB on the roster (I think one of the UFA's is) Kuhn would be in trouble, but for my money it will be Green or Starks. I don't think they both make the roster and I would be surprised if they tried to keep them both through camp when either might have a chance to hook up with another team if they get an early shot at doing so.

Starks.

Green has only really had one injury.

Starks has only played 22 games in 3 years.

I cut both Kuhn and Starks from my final 53 so Uncle Teddy better do it too.
as were Harrell and Ross along with a few other bit players.

It damn well better NOT be Tramon Williams. Most of the other names in the article and previous posts with the possible exception of James Jones who isn't going anyplace until after next season, wouldn't be missed - by me anyway, but DON'T cut Tramon.

Starks has to be the most likely one to go in the short term.

Does Sherrod count?

I think Mike McCarthy put 3 guys in order of when they're getting healthy and Sherrod was last. (might not be remembering that right). Yes he was a 1st round pick, but he's got to stay healthy.

One injury that took him out two years. At the end of last season he lost all of his burst and didn't look good.

Green 16 games over two years... avg. of 8 games per year.

Starks 22 games over three years avg. of 7.3333 games per year. That's not a big difference.

Starks 19 games over the last two years... avg. of 9.5 games per year.


Then again Bishop and Starks had the trade rumors... and Bishop is gone. but Stark is already on the field. Another injury and he's gone.

But I say the the best person win... and who knows... Harris could be the one gone and the top other 4 stay. No way to call this one (yet)..... though I think Harris (if healthy) has a good shot at staying.

Sherrod should definitely count. He has been pretty unreliable due to his very unfortunate leg injury and his timetable for completing his recovery is still up in the air.

RB/FB has 8 players in total on our roster so obviously that the first place you are looking as far as cuts go. Starks has a huge uphill battle considering his competition and his productivity since 2011 has been inconsistent at best.

Well that DEFINITELY will not be happening this year. He is the starter and Hayward is good and all but he is not ready for that role just yet nor is Mr. House. That is not the position to be cutting from the top of right now.

That position may belong to the defensive line if Raji doesn't stay consistent enough to warrant his new extended deal. If not then of course a younger player stepping up in the year ahead will determine if we can afford to let him go or if another player has to be cut to keep him.

You can't count Greens injury twice.

You count him out last year and you count his games where he played hurt because we had no other RBs.

Flanigan lost 2 years to injury his rookie year and came back to be a keystone of the Packers line.

No matter how you spin it. Starks keeps getting injured. Green was injured once.

Green got injured. Then he got healthy. Then the same injury flared up took him out again.

That's twice. One injury, two seasons.

The fact is Starks and Green have both kept getting injured every NFL season they've been in, so far the Packers haven't been able to count on ether staying healthy.

I'm not faulting a guy who tried to come back too soon, because we didn't have enough depth at his position.

I guess you could say the same thing for James Starks. His injury just "flared" up again .... and again ... and again.
