Extra Points: Packers, Muamba, Polian

Weston Hodkiewicz of the Green Bay Press-Gazette thinks that the Packers will be forced to lean heavily on a cadre of young defensive lineman that will step into starting roles next season. Defensive linemen Mike Daniels, Datone Jones, and Jerel Worthy will likely replace departing free agents B.J. Raji, Ryan Pickett, and Johnny Jolly on the defensive front of the Packers’ base 3-4 defense. Defensive line coach Mike Trgovac expects Jones and Worthy to mimic Daniels’ 2013 campaign with breakout performances next year.

    Looks like the Packers finally see that big and fat (Raji, Pickett, Jolly), doesn’t get the job done in today’s NFL and may be opting for more athletic defensive line. That needs to carry over to the entire defense.

      Agreed. The 3-4 defense does need a big nose tackle, but beyond that GB needs athletic guys capable of making plays. I still have high hopes for Datone and Worthy, but then desperately need a play maker at FS and MLB.
