A total of five ex-Packers have now been claimed off waivers a day after receiving their release from Green Bay.

Press-Gazette reporter Pete Dougherty has confirmed running back Alex Green (New York Jets), tight end D.J. Williams (Jacksonville), center Patrick Lewis (Cleveland), outside linebacker Dezman Moses (Kansas City) and inside linebacker Terrell Manning

As it turned out, the Chargers claiming Manning resulted in the release of former Packers linebacker D.J. Smith, who was cut by Green Bay earlier this offseason.

Green, a former third-round pick out of Hawaii, was the Packers’ leading rusher last season, but averaged only 3.4-yards per carry on 135 attempts for 464 yards. He’s still trying to regain the explosiveness and durability from tearing anterior cruciate ligament in his knee four games into his rookie season.

Williams, an athletic but undersized 6-feet-2, 238 pounds, showed flashes of the play-making ability he showcased during his record-setting run at Arkansas, but caught only nine passes for 70 yards in 26 regular-season games.
