Moments ago, the Green Bay Packers made a notable cut involving one of their young wide receivers. It turns out the front office has waived Equanimeous St. Brown, per Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette.

The Packers selected St. Brown in the sixth round of the 2018 NFL Draft. He was an intriguing prospect coming out of Notre Dame, as he had 92 receptions for 1,484 yards and 13 touchdowns.

St. Brown performed fairly well in his rookie season with the Packers, hauling in 21 passes for 328 yards. Unfortunately, he missed the entire 2019 season due to a serious ankle injury.

Green Bay had St. Brown for the majority of the 2020 season, but he didn't make much of an impact in the passing game. Now, he'll have to find another home before the start of the 2021 season.

St. Brown, 24, should draw interest from other teams. His 6-foot-5 frame makes him an intriguing pass catcher for any team willing to develop him.

The Packers, meanwhile, should be just fine at wide receiver. They currently have Davante Adams, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Allen Lazard, Randall Cobb and Amari Rodgers on their roster.

Green Bay also has a few reliable weapons at tight end in Robert Tonyan, Marcedes Lewis and Josiah Deguara.
