Default Packers release Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila

The Green Bay Packers have activated DT Justin Harrell from the physically unable to perform list and released DE Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila. Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations, announced the transactions Saturday.

Harrell appeared in seven games, including two starts, as a rookie in 2007.

In nine seasons with the Packers, Gbaja-Biamila appeared in 124 career games, including 74 starts. He is the franchise's all-time sacks leader with 741/2, having passed Reggie White (681/2) in 2007.

"We want to thank Kabeer for his contributions to the Green Bay Packers," Thompson said. "During his time here, he has been a big part of our organization and our community. We wish Kabeer and his family well."

In leaving the organization, Gbaja-Biamila issued the following statement: "My nine years as a Green Bay Packer have been a blessing that is beyond words. I thank God for bringing me to this first-class organization and first-class community. During my time here, I've built relationships with a number of people in the Packer family. The front office executives, G.M.s, coaches, past and present players, the enormous support and administrative staff plus the greatest fans in football, all have helped make my time here truly special and I am thankful for that. It has been a very positive experience. I was able to build a family here and grow with a community that I call home. Again, I've been truly blessed. I don't know what my football future holds, but one thing I've realized is that football is more than a game - it's about building relationships and changing lives. One of the commitments I've had throughout my career has been to share the gospel of Jesus Christ and that is something that I intend on doing whether on the field or not. God bless the Green Bay Packers!"

At this stage it may be more like: The B&G will make KGB look good!

For the later part of his career he's been more of a 3rd down pass rusher with poor run stopping skills, and GB certainly needs run stopping help

Why do I see the broncos getting him and giving him a starting job?

Am I the only one who saw this coming to the Broncos? I mean when they started signing every single cast-off from the Browns a couple years back...doesn't that spell disaster???

hmm...maybe. I knew there was a huge problem once they had a 5'11 DE as a starter

The thing that surprised me is, I had no idea he had that many sacks. I guess the Packers had had such a stretch of mediocrity and/or early playoff exits that I was just unaware that he was quietly piling up those numbers.
