Nick Barnett On His Departure From The Packers

There have been some sour divorces between players and former teams in free agency, but that doesn't seem to be the case for LB Nick Barnett and the Green Bay Packers. He's a guy who's not afraid to say what's on his mind, but he has "no hard feelings" and now he's got a new opportunity with the Bills.

From Sports Radio Interviews:

Whether or not he saw his release from the Packers coming:

"Every year you know, this year definitely because I got hurt last year, you kinda have something and we kinda talked to them about the process of signing A.J. (Hawk) to that large of a deal and them signing (Desmond) Bishop we figured there would be some movement either with me (Brandon) Chillar, (Brady) Poppinga, or other linebackers as well. From me I always kept it positive and I was still a Packer at the time so I’m not just going to throw everything away until I have a conversation with them. It sucked with the lockout I couldn’t get things figured out before the lockout. I just had to go through it. I have no hard feelings, it is what it is, they wanted to go in a different direction with some younger players, and I was able to get in a fit where they needed a veteran here and I’m excited."
