Kampman learning Packers' new defense

Posted:

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Aaron Kampman finally talked to reporters today about the Green Bay Packers' switch to a 3-4 defense, but the two-time Pro Bowl defensive end didn't have much to say about his switch to left outside linebacker in the new scheme.

He says he's learning it, and that's about all he wants to say. He's didn't talk to reporters at all at last week's organized team activity practice.

Kampman made two nice plays in today's OTA practice while dropping into coverage. He deflected one pass that resulted in a Tramon Williams interception and broke up another pass intended for wide receiver Brett Swain.

Coach Mike McCarthy says Kampman's performance has been very positive. The coach says Kampman fits in very well in the new defense.

Wide receiver Donald Driver took part in his first OTA practice. He acknowledged later that he wants the Packers to restructure the remaining two years of his contract but insisted he's not unhappy with his situation. He says family matters kept him away from last week's practice.
