Packers to Shift LB’s Barnett and Hawk?

From: Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

The Packers have entered the past three training camps with a pretty good idea which player was going to be at each linebacker spot: Nick Barnett would man the middle; A.J. Hawk was on the weak side; and Brady Poppinga helped clog up running lanes on the strong side. No more. Everyone will be evaluated for a position change, according to Moss. Desmond Bishop will be given a legitimate shot to win a starting job. Brandon Chillar will be given every opportunity to be an every-down player as well.

“There’s going to be a great offseason to evaluate and then put together a group that can get on the field,” Moss said. “Whoever comes out of that group as a top three, I’m going to be very happy about that because I think we’ve got some guys that can truly rebound from this year and have a great year next year.” Moss – if he and the scheme are back next season – can only hope that’s the case because his unit, in his words, was one of the most “disappointing” in the 6-10 campaign
