Linebacker Nick Barnett will be released or traded from the Green Bay Packers after eight years with the team and a Super Bowl title. Barnett wrote on his official Twitter account:
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..
Green Bay will first attempt to trade Barnett, but if they are unsuccessful they will release him and Barnett will be looking for a new home during the free agency period. Barnett has named the New York Giants, San Diego Chargers, Philadelphia Eagles and Tampa Bay Buccaneers as teams who he would have interest in.
