Roster move

The Green Bay Packers Monday waived cornerback Derek Combs.<p>

Combs, who came to Green Bay from Kansas City in the off-season of 2003 in a trade for a conditional 2005 draft pick, played in eight regular-season games, primarily on special teams, and was inactive for the other eight contests and both playoff games. He missed two November games (at Tampa Bay and vs. San Francisco) after spraining his left ankle in a Sunday night victory at Minnesota (Nov. 2).

Overall in '03, Combs, 25, made six special-teams tackles, along with one stop from scrimmage.

Allocated to Amsterdam of NFL Europe this spring, Combs made 29 tackles (28 solo), forced a fumble and broke up six passes, including one interception. He also returned 18 kickoffs for 429 yards (23.8 average). Combs also played for Amsterdam in 2002.
