When you’re a fringe player in the NFL, the career lifespan depends on your ability to make plays and not mistakes.  Jeremy Ross is learning that the hard way today. is reporting that the Green Bay Packers have released wide receiver Jeremy Ross after his first quarter fumble against the Bengals.

Mike McCarthy possibly wanting to send a message to his team, sacrificed the young wide receiver.

The Packers continued to let Ross return kicks kick and get reps on offense after he fumbled a kickoff early in Sunday’s 34-30 loss at Cincinnati.

It was Ross’ second botch return in the last four games dating back to last season.
