GREEN BAY (WITI) — The Green Bay Packers have released WR Jeremy Ross. The transaction was announced Monday, September 22nd by Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson.

Ross played in eight regular-season games over the past two seasons for the Packers. He averaged 17.9 yards on nine kickoff returns, 20.5 yards on six punt returns and made one catch for 8 yards.

During Sunday’s game against the Bengals in Cincinnati, the Bengals jumped ahead of the Packers quick in the first quarter. The Pack was down 14-0 before Aaron Rodgers even came into the game.

One of those Bengals’ touchdowns came from a turnover caused by Ross, who lost the ball during a punt recovery.
