Jim Owczarski of JSONLINE gets us ready for the start of Packers training camp! Jim says the #1 reason the Packers made the move is because of the changes in defense this off-season and also makes the point that the team must feel they're better without Mike Daniels than with him.
Read more from Jim about the move here: "On the eve of Matt LaFleur’s first training camp as Green Bay Packers head coach, general manager Brian Gutekunst released veteran defensive lineman Mike Daniels to clear snaps on the field for a versatile group of younger players and salary-cap space for a contract extension with Kenny Clark.
Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst said trade talks fell through for the 30-year-old Daniels, which contributed to the release of the eighth-year veteran Wednesday morning. The move saves the Packers $8,312,500, giving the club $15.29 million under the cap with which to work."
