Packers LB Barnett Set To Be Released?

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?
