The Green Bay Packers are currently 3-6 and well out of playoff conversations in 2023. The loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers may have been the nail in the coffin when it comes to a possible playoff run. While there were certainly some positives to take away from their loss, there were enough negatives to warrant a release. That is exactly what the Packers did less than 24 hours after the loss.
The Green Bay Packers Release Defensive Back Innis Gaines Less Than 24 Hours After Loss To The Pittsburgh Steelers
It has been announced that the Green Bay Packers have released S Innis Gaines. The transaction was announced by General Manager Brian Gutekunst on Monday.
Gaines originally joined the Packers on Jan. 8, 2021, and has been on Green Bay’s practice squad and active roster. Since joining the Packers, he has appeared in 12 games with one start. That includes four appearances this season. Gaines has made four defense tackles (all solo) and seven special teams tackles for the Packers.
It appears that Gaines’ release was make room for a new defensive back. Packers claim Seahawks’ Kyu Blu Kelly off waivers according to NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo.
Kelly was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens in the fifth round of the 2023 draft. After final cuts in August, he was claimed off waivers by the Seahawks and spent the first two months or so on their roster, playing 38 snaps on special teams.
