The last few days in the NFL have seen a number of releases take place, inducing several notable ones. The San Francisco 49ers moved on from Jeremy Zuttah after recently acquiring him. Meanwhile, the Green Bay Packers and indianapolis colts both part ways with familiar faces.

49ers release Zuttah months after trading for him

In a March trade with the Baltimore Ravens, the San Francisco 49ers acquire veteran center Jeremy Zuttah as the teams also swapped sixth round picks. Now only five months later and less than two weeks into training camp, Zuttah has been released. Daniel Kilgore, who started 13 games last season at center, beat out Zuttah decisively for the starting job.

There was no place on the roster or playing time available, so the team released the 31-year-old to give him a chance elsewhere. Zuttah was drafted in the third round of the 2008 draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who he spent his first six seasons with. He then spent the last three seasons with the Baltimore Ravens, making the Pro Bowl last year.

Colts part ways with veteran Langford

The Indianapolis Colts have released veteran defensive end Kendall Langford via the failed physical designation. The 31-year-old could seemingly never recover from a knee injury he suffered last season that caused him to go on injured reserve. That injury also ended Langford's streak of 135 consecutive games played in, the most among active defensive lineman at the time. Releasing him saves the Colts $3.75 million in cap space and counts $500,000 in dead money.

Langford was drafted in the third round of the 2008 draft by the Miami Dolphins. He spent four seasons with them before spending three with the Rams and two with the Colts. In his career, Langford has played in 135 games and started 113 of them. He has 290 total tackles, 22.5 sacks, four forced fumbles and one fumble recovery in his career.

Packers move on from troubled Guion

The Green Bay Packers released veteran defensive lineman Letroy Guion. In March it was announced Guion was suspended for the first four games of the season for violating the league's performance enhancing drug policy. Two months ago he was arrested in Hawaii for DUI. Guion was drafted in the fifth round of the 2008 draft by the Minnesota Vikings, spending his first six seasons with the team.

He then signed with the Packers, where he has played the last three seasons. In his NFL career, Guion has played in 112 games, starting 66 of them. He has 180 total tackles, 8.5 sacks, three forced fumbles and two fumbles recoveries in his career.
