Practice squad additions, waiver losses

According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, RB Kregg Lumpkin cleared waivers and has been signed to the Packers practice squad. Rookie fan fave Tyrell Sutton, sadly, was claimed by Carolina. The Pack had offered him a practice squad contract if he cleared waivers. Dang.

LB Cyril Obiozor also cleared waivers and chose to sign onto the Packers practice squad rather than with another team's practice squad despite that team having fewer linebackers.

QB Brian Brohm, the biggest name among the Packer cuts, according to the Journal-Sentinel "has cleared waivers, but he is taking his time deciding which practice squad he plans to join. The Packers are waiting to hear from him and are holding a spot open, but he's definitely talking with other clubs, a league source said."

That's the latest. Stay tuned.
