Kampman breaks silence on Packers’ switch to 3-4

The Packers’ switch from a 4-3 to a 3-4 defense is sure to have an effect on a number of players, some more than others. Aaron Kampman falls in the “more” category as he transitions from a 4-3 defensive end to a 3-4 outside linebacker.

Kampman has been unusually quiet since coordinator Dom Capers was hired to lead the Packers’ defensive transition, leading some to speculate that the seven-year veteran is less than pleased with his new role. On Wednesday, Kampman broke his silence on the subject in what the Green Bay Press-Gazette described as “a somewhat terse exchange with reporters.” Here’s what the Press-Gazette had to say:

Perhaps the best question posed to him was this: If it were up to you, would you still be a 4-3 (defensive) end?

To which Kampman responded: “I’m not at liberty to make those choices.”

Kampman has 50.5 career sacks, and his Packers coaches and teammates recently expressed confidence in his pass-rush abilities in a 3-4 defense.
