05:27 PM ET 10.16 | The Green Bay Packers have suddenly become thin at linebacker, thanks to injuries to starters Clay Matthews and Nick Perry, so the team is going out and doing their due diligence to make sure they are doing what they can to bolster their depth and continue moving forward. For the Packers, that meant bringing in eight players who could fill the outside linebacker role in their defensive scheme, and we have the names of all of the candidates for the open jobs. The linebackers who worked out with the Packers were Victor Aiyewa, Alan Baxter, Demetrius Hartsfield, Jake Muasau, Justin Staples, Aston Whiteside, Brandon Williams, and Lawrence Wilson.

Tebow and JaMarcus Russell have LB potential.

He plays like a wild beast. The best LB in the NFL by far.

You probably wish you had him on your team. The Vikings defense could use some life.

He's flashy and gets sent in blitzes a bunch. But he also get burnt by over pursuing. I'd take Patrick Willis over him every day of the week and twice on Sunday.

Also Tamba Hali, Suggs, even Von Miller and his baggage I'd take before him. And DeMarcus Ware (now a down lineman, but was an LB)
