Report Says The Packers Want to Trade LB Nick Barnett


Dan Pompei of the National Football Post reports the Packers are all ears when it comes to talking about trading Nick Barnett.

Moving him would save them more than $4 million on the salary cap, and they could use that space. Barnett is a versatile, valuable defender who can start in multiple schemes and at multiple positions, but he’s now behind Desmond Bishop and A.J. Hawk on the Packers’ depth chart.

If the Packers can’t get what they want for Barnett before camp or early in camp, they may hang onto him to see if teams increase their offers as camp and preseason go on. Releasing him also could be an option at some point.
