The Packers won’t be bringing linebacker Nate Palmer back for a fourth season with the club.
The team announced Friday that they have released Palmer, who joined the team as a sixth-round pick in the 2013 draft.
Palmer started 10 games at inside linebacker last season before giving way to Jake Ryan down the stretch and in the playoffs. He ended the year with 68 tackles and a sack.
Palmer missed the entire 2014 season after tearing his MCL during the preseason and played in eight games for Green Bay during his rookie season.
The Packers used Clay Matthews at inside linebacker last year, but plan to kick him back outside in 2016. Ryan, Sam Barrington, Carl Bradford and Joe Thomas are in-house options at the position, although the Packers may add others in the draft.
