Roster move

Packers place wide receiver Rod Harper on waivers; roster at 87

The Green Bay Packers Thursday placed wide receiver Rod Harper on waivers, according to a source with access to the league transaction wire.

Harper was signed as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Murray State this offseason. By releasing Harper, who participated in the team's minicamp this week, the Packers reduced their roster to 87 players of which 77 are under contract. Running back Ryan Grant, along with Green Bay's nine draft picks, are unsigned.

The NFL allows its teams a limit of 80 players under contract.
