Having just gone through a complete rebuild at the inside linebacker position, the Packers face the same at the outside linebacker position next season.
The Green Bay Packers are weak at four positions entering the 2014 offseason. Here are the culprits and why they need to be fixed. Let’s point some fingers!
They’re not positions of strength and they’re not positions of weakness. The Green Bay Packers need to consider adding some new blood to these groups though.
