Unfortunately for Westbrook, he hasn’t really made much of an impact since 2019. In his first three seasons in the NFL, Westbrook had 159 receptions for 1,716 yards and nine touchdowns. Since 2019, he has just 11 receptions for 72 yards.
Westbrook, a former fourth-round pick out of Oklahoma, will now have to look elsewhere for another opportunity.
In addition to releasing Westbrook from their practice squad, the Packers parted ways with defensive lineman Jack Heflin.
The Packers also signed offensive tackle Jack Delance and center Michal Menet to their practice squad. At 5-8, the Packers are hoping to win out and potentially steal a playoff spot in the NFC. In order to do that, they’ll need to defeat the Rams, Dolphins, Vikings and Lions over the next four games.
