Packers cut Ryan and Hodge; Flynn No. 2
The Green Bay Packers cut punter Jon Ryan Monday because Packers' General manager Ted Thompson said Ryan was not as consistent as his competitor for the job, former Washington punter Derrick Frost.
"Like at any position, I think at the end of the day we felt like it helps the team get better," said Thompson.
Ryan had punts of 14 and 15 yards in the exhibition opener against Cincinnati, but he got better after that.
