WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have released two of the three punting prospects they brought into camp to challenge for Mike Renaud's job.

Brett Cameron, the son of Bomber punting legend Bob Cameron, and Aussie rules footballer Tim Hutchison have been let go, the team announced Friday.

Cameron leaves after scoring his first CFL points in Wednesday's pre-season game, when he kicked a 37-yard field goal in the Bombers 24-6 loss to the Toronto Argonauts.

Renaud's job looked a little safer after his solid effort Wednesday when he averaged just over 44 yards with his punts.

But the Bombers have held onto Billy Pavlopoulos, the former UBC Thunderbirds kicker they picked up in the 2013 CFL draft.

The team also released import linebacker Chad Faulcon, import defensive lineman Marcus Hyde, import defensive back Sam Pope and non-import defensive back Jawann Westerman, who was signed late last season and placed on the practice roster.
