It was a rough Saturday for two former UConn Huskies as NFL teams were busy getting their rosters down to the mandatory limit of 53.
Offensive lineman Keith Gray was cut loose by the Carolina Panthers while second-year linebacker Danny Lansanah was let go by the Green Bay Packers.
Lansanah signed with the Packers after the draft in 2008 as a non-drafted free agent. He was released before the season started last year but was quickly signed to the practice squad. He spent the first five weeks of the season on the practice squad before being added to the 53-man roster on October 7, 2008.
He appeared in five games in 2008 and made two tackles on special teams. Lansanah made eighteen tackles in four preseason games this year.
Gray saw action in just two preseason games after signing with the Panthers as a non-drafted free agent after the 2009 NFL Draft.
