News: Blanchard has been signed to the Browns practice squad.
Impact: Blanchard has spent time with Carolina, Chicago and Green Bay. He was with the Packers during training camp this summer before being waived when the team cut its roster to 53. The 6-foot-3, 223-pound Blanchard went 45-0 as a starter and led Wisconsin-Whitewater to three Division III national championships.

News: Blanchard was released by the Packers on Tuesday.
Impact: Blanchard faced long odds of making the roster in Green Bay, and this confirms that he will not open the season on the Packers' roster. He could hook on with another team before Week 1, but he is likely looking at a third-string job at best.
