Packers trade Cole Van Lanen as they trim roster in latest transaction

GREEN BAY — The Green Bay Packers trimmed their roster to get under the 80-man limit Tuesday and two former University of Wisconsin players were among those with whom they parted ways.

The Packers traded offensive lineman Cole Van Lanen to the Jacksonville Jaguars for an undisclosed draft pick and released receiver Danny Davis, who was recovering from an ankle injury.

In addition, the Packers released injured safety Vernon Scott and placed running back Kylin Hill on the reserve/physically unable to perform list Tuesday.

The club announced the three cuts and the trade of Van Lanen, first reported by ESPN.com, and confirmed by a source.

Once the Van Lanen trade is official, the Packers’ roster will be at 79, one below the limit. They could add a player before they leave Wednesday for their final exhibition game against Kansas City on Thursday night.
