GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The Green Bay Packers have released safety Matt Giordano and defensive end Michael Montgomery.

Giordano, who was cut by Indianapolis last September after four seasons with the Colts, was signed by the Packers a few weeks later to provide depth in the wake of injuries. He appeared in five games.

Montgomery, a sixth-round selection in the 2005 draft, appeared in 56 games over the course of five seasons with Green Bay. He started eight games in 2008.
