Should the Packers Have Kept Clay Matthews at Inside Linebacker?

Don’t get me wrong. Clay Matthews is a fantastic pass rushing outside linebacker, but I was a little surprised when Mike McCarthy stated during his season wrap-up press conference that the team would be looking to move Matthews back outside. Sure Matthews puts up flashier numbers there, and, subsequently, I’m sure he’s much happier playing outside, but is the move in the best...

Despite the start of OTAs on Monday, the Packers have no plans to rush back their Pro Bowl receiver, who missed the entire 2015 season with a torn ACL. “It’s still just a progression.
