Aaron Kampman’s Career May Be Over

Former Green Bay Packers defensive end Aaron Kampman was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars Thursday, which may end the pass rusher’s NFL career.

Packers Get Fourth-Round Compensatory Pick

Aaron Kampman

The Green Bay Packers got something for Aaron Kampman after all. The Packers received a fourth-round compensatory pick for losing Kampman in free agency last year. The NFL doles out draft picks for teams who lose more free agents than they sign and everyone knows the Packers don’t sign anyone, so the loss of Kampman, who signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars, landed them a pretty decent draft pick.

Thank You, Al Harris

Al Harris

As far as I’m concerned, Al Harris will always be a member of the Green Bay Packers. Although Harris no longer fit into the Packers’ plans, much like Aaron Kampman before him, Harris took the time to make one last gesture for the fans. In Sunday’s Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Harris took out a full-page ad […]

Sound Familiar? Kampman Tears ACL, Out For Year

For the second year in a row, former Green Bay Packers and current Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Aaron Kampman tore his ACL and will miss the remainder of the season. Last November, Kampman tore his ACL in the Packers’ victory over the San Francisco 49ers. Yesterday, Kampman tore his ACL in practice. It’s unclear whether […]

In Case You Missed It: Aaron Kampman Still Has A Little Left

We had pretty strong suspicions before, but it’s now clear Aaron Kampman was badly miscast as an outside linebacker with the Green Bay Packers. Kampman never took to the move from defensive end and had only 3.5 sacks before going down with a torn ACL in game nine, last season. Kampman signed with the Jacksonville […]

Ryan Pickett A Defensive End, B.J. Raji The Nose Tackle

There were a couple of surprises during the first day of the Green Bay Packers’ OTAs open to the public. Ryan Pickett, who’s played defensive tackle his entire career, was lining up at defensive end with the Packers’ starting defense. Last year’s first-round pick B.J. Raji took Pickett’s place at nose tackle. Whether the move […]

Packers Made A Mistake Not Trading Kampman

Aaron Kampman

Back in October 2009 we suggested the Green Bay Packers could be listening to offers for Aaron Kampman. Ultimately, Packers’ general manager Ted Thompson didn’t make a move and he’s given no indication there were any offers for Kampman or, if there were, what those offers might have been. This offseason, Kampman signed with the […]

Bears Targeting Kampman, Peppers

Aaron Kampman

The Chicago Bears needs a defensive end, that’s been established. Adewale Ogunleye is an unrestricted free agent and isn’t expected to be re-signed. Further, Gaines Adams, who the Bears traded a second-round draft choice for during the 2009 season, died in the offseason. Even with both of those guys, the Bears defensive line managed only […]

Kampman Could Land in the Division

Aaron Kampman

The Green Bay Packers’ Aaron Kampman is a free agent and we’ve speculated on several occasions why he’s unlikely to be back with the team for the 2010 season. Chief among those reasons is Kampman didn’t fare well converting from a 4-3 defensive end to a 3-4 outside linebacker. For that reason alone, Kampman is […]

When the Green Bay Packers cleaned out their lockers this week, several members of the team may have done so for the last time. Long-time starters Chad Clifton, Mark Tauscher, Ryan Pickett and Aaron Kampman are all unrestricted free agents.

Predictions: Packers vs. Lions

Monty: The Detroit Lions once again demonstrated how bad their defense is in their victory over the Cleveland Browns last week. The Lions allowed Brady Quinn to throw for 304 yards and four touchdowns in that game. Quinn previously had thrown three touchdowns – in his career. In other words, the Green Bay Packers will […]
