RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Sam Barrington.
Clay Matthews will return to his natural position at outside linebacker in 2016, but that doesn't assure Barrington of a starting role. Rookie Blake Martinez will be in the mix, as well as second-year pro Jake Ryan. At press time, the two linebacker jobs in the middle of Green Bay's defense remain completely up for grabs. All three players figure to garner playing time, though, but Barrington's suspect injury history could render him the odd man out.
Barrington saw more and more playing time as the 2014 season went on, and the offseason release of former starters A.J. Hawk and Brad Jones puts him in position to play a prominent role in the middle of the Packers' defense in 2015. He has the inside track to the starting middle linebacker job next to Clay Matthews.
Spent most of his rookie season on injured reserve with a hamstring injury, but otherwise provides depth at inside linebacker and on special teams.
Barrington will compete for a reserve linebacker job during training camp, and he could see action on special teams if he makes the cut.
