A few days ago we mentioned some reports that the Green Bay Packers were looking to trade LB Nick Barnett but those rumors were confirmed today by Barnett himself.
“Just met with G.M. Ted [Thompson]. Thanks for the great 8 years. Very blessed 2 be apart of such a great tradition and great fans,” Barnett wrote via Twitter. ”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.”
ESPN’s Adam Schefter tweeted that the will try to trade him but if they cannot find any interest, he will then be cut.
The Packers have given new contracts to both A.J. Hawk and Desmond Bishop so the middle linebacker position is currently filled.
