Packers OC Joe Philbin Interviews, John Dorsey Doesn't, and Brad Jones Could Be The Starter

The Green Bay Packers have one more practice on Thursday before taking the weekend off. And that's good because people have some interviews to get to.

Philbin has another interview scheduled - JSOnline. It's been reported that offensive coordinator Joe Philbin will interview with the Chiefs, but he's expected to have another one with an unknown team. It's no surprise that he's in demand after the year the Packers have had.

Packers’ John Dorsey declines offer to interview for Colts G.M. | ProFootballTalk. It's not been reported why their college scouting guru wouldn't want to interview with the Colts. He would be a strong candidate, if they did interview him.

Jones could be back as Packers starting linebacker - JSOnline. Some actual football news! After injuries eventually forced Brad Jones onto the I.R. in 2010, I thought he'd compete for the starting job in 2011. Instead, Erik Walden was never challenged for the job. Even without Frank Zombo for most of the season, Jones never seemed to be an option.

The team might prefer to start a bigger player at linebacker, and Walden's got about 10 pounds on Jones. While it hasn't been a good season for Walden, Jones didn't stand out until the final game of the regular season. I'm not expecting much from him, but he probably has more playmaking potential right now than Walden.

And, by the way, Jones tackled a fan who got onto the field last Sunday because he was cold and didn't want to wait for the security guards to catch him.
