Packers Release Tremon Smith, Claim Tyler Ervin

Packers GM Brian Gutekunst announced earlier today that CB Tremon Smith was released after appearing in six games for Green Bay as their primary kick returner.

No time was wasted finding a replacement, as Gutekunst claimed former Jacksonville Jaguars RB Tyler Ervin off waivers, per Ian Rapoport.
