The Packers will have their entire group of right outside linebackers back. That's because they re-signed Erik Walden today. Walden, an unrestricted free agent, shared the job with Frank Zombo and Brad Jones last season, but it's widely believed the Packers will address that position in the draft, so there's no guarantee all three will be on the roster when the season begins. Walden, who signed with the Packers in October 2010, started 15 games last season and was fifth on the team with 86 tackles (50 solo). He also had three sacks. Terms of Walden's contract were not disclosed, but it's likely a one-year deal for at or near the league minimum. Walden had a run-in with the law following the Thanksgiving game against Detroit after an incident with his live-in girlfriend. However, he reached a deferred judgement agreement to resolve the disorderly conduct-domestic abuse charge without pleading guilty. He agreed to perform community service and receive counseling.
