GREEN BAY, Wis. – During training camp last summer, rookie fifth-round pick Kamal Martin emerged as a potential starter at inside linebacker for the Green Bay Packers.
Fast forward almost 12 months and a lot has changed. Krys Barnes, an undrafted free agent last year, has become the every-down linebacker. Plus, the team added veteran starter De’Vondre Campbell in June.
So, there was Martin taking a couple snaps at outside linebacker on Tuesday during the one-on-one pass-rushing drill. In his second snap against rookie offensive tackle Coy Cronk, Martin’s right knee buckled and he dropped to the turf.
