The Green Bay Packers linebacker Aaron Kampman expects that he will recover fully form the left knee injury by the beginning of training camp, but he needs to figure out which team’s NFL jersey he will put on to play next season’s games.
The two-time Pro Bowl selection for the Packers has played all eight of his NFL season in Packers jersey, but he is scheduled to become a free agent and there has not yet any confirmation on his future with the team.
“Obviously, this is the only place I’ve been and it’d be great to continue my career here,” Kampman said Monday following the Packers’ 51-45 overtime playoff loss to the Arizona Cardinals. “But we’ll see what happens.”
Kampman’s season-ending knee injury came during the Nov. 22 game against the San Francisco 49ers and had surgery on Dec. 4. Although he thinks that he can do both 4-3 defensive scheme and 3-4 that new defensive coordinator Dom Capers installed to the Packers, Kampman also thinks he will possibly choose a team that runs a 4-3 defensive scheme.
