Injury Prone Linebacker
According to Packers linebacker Nick Barnett, through his Twitter account, he has been released by his team.
Just met with Ted, Thanks for the great 8 years. Very blessed 2 be apart of such a great tradition and great fans..
Happy I was able to be here for the great xlv run… I will always keep a Special place in my heart for this team and city..
More validation from the National Football Post: Per a league source, we’ve been told the Packers will try to trade Barnett. Should the team fail to find a buyer, he’ll be released Thursday evening.
It does not come as a shock that Green Bay is parting ways with Barnett, as rumors were floating around him being traded last week. A potential landing spot for Barnett? Speculation of a trade possibility to Kansas City surfaced, so maybe the Chiefs are his next club?
