The Green Bay Packers announced Wednesday that they’ve released veteran DT Ricky Jean Francois. This leaves the Packers with an open roster spot so you can expect them to sign a player in the coming days. Francois, 30, is a former seventh-round pick of the 49ers back in 2009. He played four seasons for San Francisco before departing and signing on with the Colts as an unrestricted free agent.
