Packers to keep three tight ends, cut RB Rajion Neal

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Here's a midday update on the Green Bay Packers' cuts so far.

Remember, final cuts are due into the NFL office at 4 p.m. ET, but the Packers typically don't announce their moves until well after the deadline.

The Packers are keeping three tight ends, according to two sources. They have informed Mitchell Henry and Justin Perillo that they will be released, meaning rookie sixth-round pick Kennard Backman will be the third tight end, joining Richard Rodgers and Andrew Quarless.

In the mild-surprise category, the Packers are cutting running back Rajion Neal, according to a source. He was the third running back behind Eddie Lacy and James Starks throughout the preseason. There's been no word on whether that means they are keeping either Alonzo Harris or John Crockett as the No. 3 running back or if they plan to go with just two.

Here's a list of the confirmed cuts so far:
