GREEN BAY–Packers General Manager Ted Thompson talked about the process that’ll unfold this weekend, as the NFL’s 32 teams pare their rosters to the regular-season 53-man limit. The deadline for doing that is late Saturday afternoon.

“We’ll do evaluations of the game. We’ll have several meetings, talk about different scenarios, and then we’ll start calling players. (Sunday) the league will call us and tell us which of our guys have been claimed (off waivers), and then we’ll start assembling a practice squad,” Thompson said on Tuesday.

Thompson has long talked about what a painful process roster cutdowns are for him.

“Sometimes there’s too much fantasy football. This is a hard thing to do. It gets a little too flippant that a guy got axed. Maybe I’m just sensitive to it because once I got axed,” Thompson added.
