NFL - Scoop Du Jour

Aaron Kampman(notes) appeared to struggle in his new postion as an outside linebacker in the 3-4 defense installed by the new defensive coordinator of the Green Bay Packers, Dom Capers.

And speaking about the change for the first time, Kampman, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, chose his words carefully.

"There's always a learning curve," said Kampman. "Today there were some things that I would have liked to have back, but that's the learning curve."

When Kampman broke up a pass play from Rodgers by dropping back in to coverage, assistant coach Kevin Greene seemed to jump three feet in the air in celebration.

"Aaron Kampman's performance so far has been very positive," said McCarthy. "I think he has really fit in very well. I think he attacked the new defense just like you think Aaron would."

But it is clear this is a transition for Kampman that hasn't been paint-by-numbers easy, the Journal-Sentinel wrote.
