Packers acquire LB Goodson from Giants

The Green Bay Packers acquired fourth-year linebacker B.J. Goodson in a trade Tuesday with the New York Giants.

The compensation was not announced, but multiple outlets reported the sides swapped conditional seventh-round picks.

The Packers, who kick off the season Thursday night at Chicago, were thin at inside linebacker with Oren Burks sidelined by a torn pectoral muscle.

Goodson, 26, started 13 of his 15 games and tallied 61 tackles, two interceptions and a half-sack in 2018.
