Offensive tackle released

Curtin spent the last two seasons on injured reserve

The Green Bay Packers once had high hopes for the tall Brennan Curtin. Injuries, however to the 6-foot-9 offensive tackle never allowed him to see the field in his first two seasons with the team.

The Packers Wednesday pulled the plug on Curtin, placing him on waivers.

A third-year pro out of Notre Dame, Curtin was selected by the Packers in the sixth round (212th overall) of the 2003 NFL Draft.

He missed the entire 2003 season with a knee injury. Last year, he missed the first two weeks of training camp because of a staphy infection on his thigh. Ten plays into his first preseason game, he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee and was placed on injured reserve.

Curtin didn't have much of a chance to make this year's roster. He had been playing tackle with the third-string offense behind reserves Kevin Barry and Steve Morley.
