Read here from Bedard/jsonline. Aaron Kampman is no longer a Packer. Part of me is sad that he’s gone. I really liked Aaron Kampman and what he stood for as an athlete in and out of football. He was by all accounts a super decent guy and I’m always left with a feeling of loss when a good character guy leaves the family.
But I have to admit, Steve and I had called for his trade last year – we could have gotten more than the likely compensatory pick we’ll get for him now. I just don’t think he would have been able to contribute a whole lot this coming year as a LB (though he might have helped in hybrid 4-3 or 4-4 line-ups up on the line).
I hope for his sake that Kampman tears it up down in Jacksonville.
