We’ve talked about this at length. Sam Barrington is one starter and Clay Matthews is the other, whether he likes it or not. The problem is depth. Since the mercy killings of A.J. Hawk and Brad Jones, the Packers’ depth at inside linebacker looks pretty bad. It’s Nate Palmer and Carl Bradford behind Matthews and Barrington. Both are converted outside linebackers. Bradford wasn’t good enough to play a down for the Packers as a rookie. Palmer spent all of 2014 on injured reserve. There’s also undersized Joe Thomas, another of the Packers’ famous undrafted free agents. You know Matthews will inevitably go down at some point (or just up and quit) and it seems like an iffy idea at best to have to rely on one of these guys to step in.
