Panthers claim CB LaDarius Gunter
We don't know how the Packers NFC Championship game rematch with the Falcons Sunday night in Atlanta will turn out; but we do know this much will be different about the Packers defense, Ladarius Gunter will not be the team's number one corner. Gunter played just 2 snaps in the season opening win over the Seahawks.
ESPN's Adam Schefter announced this afternoon that the team was to release Ricky Jean Francois, but his name didn't appear on the league's waiver wire.
With wide receiver Geronimo Allison returning from suspension, the Packers needed to make a move to create roster space.
After going undrafted, Gunter made the Packers 53 man roster in 2015 and has been a part of the team's secondary that has struggled greatly over the last couple years. There was no word yet and who would fill the other. Those moves, along with the rise of players like Josh Hawkins, forced Gunter even further down the bench.
Francois was drafted by the San Francisco 49ers in the seventh round of the 2009 NFL Draft and played two seasons with the Colts in addition to his time with the 49ers, Redskins and Packers. Guaranteed at his signing was $250,000, which he will be able to keep.
The Packers now have five defensive linemen on the roster: Dial, Adams, Mike Daniels, Kenny Clark and Dean Lowry.
