The Green Bay Packers made a surprising move on Wednesday cutting a player many expected would start for their club.

While it looked for quite some time during training camp that Packers veteran Tim Masthay would be back for his 7th season as the organization's punter, the Packers unexpectedly cut him from the roster on Tuesday.

We now according to a report from Pro Football Talk's Josh Alper that the Packers decision was prompted by a move from the Tampa Bay Bucaneers who released punter Jacob Schum allowing the Packers to quickly snatch him up, resulting in Masthay being the odd man out.

While punting is obviously not always the most important or exciting part of the game, it will be worth noting how Schum performs when compared to the consistent performance from Masthay over the past 7 seasons.
