Packers release 5 players, including Hargrove

Posted:

 

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Defensive end Anthony Hargrove, already facing an eight-game suspension for his role in the Saints bounty pool, has been released by the Green Bay Packers.

   The NFL has said the Saints' bounty program paid defensive players improper cash bonuses for hits that injured opponents from 2009 through 2011.

   The 29-year-old Hargrove has denied NFL accusations that he lied to league investigators. Hargrove, with the Saints from 2009-2010, played last season with Seattle. Green Bay signed the 6-foot-3, 287-pound Hargrove on March 29. He was suspended by the NFL on May 2.

   The Packers on Friday also released wide receiver Andrew Brewer, safety Micah Pellerin, offensive tackle Herb Taylor and cornerback Dion Turner.
