At least thus far, the Green Bay Packers have not expressed much interest in retaining free agent Andy Mulumba. However, the fourth-year linebacker appears to have other suitors. According to a report from the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's Tom Silverstein, Mulumba met with the New England Patriots on Thursday and has another visit scheduled with the Kansas City Chiefs for later this week.
Mulumba arrived in Green Bay in 2013 as an undrafted free agent after spending four years with the Eastern Michigan Eagles. Despite long odds, Mulumba won a spot on the Packers' 53-man roster, appearing in 14 games as a rookie while accruing 30 tackles, a sack and a fumble recovery. Mulumba missed most of the following year while rehabbing from a torn ACL, but managed to recover in time for training camp in 2015. The linebacker put together a strong preseason and made the season-opening roster again, but saw his playing time diminish in favor of the more explosive Jayrone Elliott. Still, Mulumba remains an intriguing young player who can play a number of positions.
For his career, Mulumba has amassed 35 total tackles, one sack and one forced fumble. Canadian raised, Mulumba became the fifth overall pick in the 2013 CFL Draft. If he doesn't land with an NFL team this season, he could continue his football career up north.
