Packers' Mike McCarthy wants Matthews to play multiple positions
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

Packers coach Mike McCarthy emphasized during organized team activities that outside linebacker Clay Matthews will play multiple positions this season, per the Journal Sentinel.

"Clay Matthews is a great pass rusher. He's going to continue to play as many different positions as we can get out of him," McCarthy said. "We need to utilize him as much as we can. Talked to Clay a couple times early in off-season program and meetings he's been through. He's moving around."

Matthews spent a lot of time playing on the inside of the defense last season and in his exit interviews he said the coaching staff discussed keeping him at multiple spots.

Matthews recorded 61 tackles, 11 sacks and two forced fumbles for the Packers last season.

Clay Matthews fine with playing inside for Packers
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Clay Matthews is listed by the Packers an outside linebacker, but he spent much of this past season playing on the inside.

Defensive coordinator Dom Capers moved Matthews to the inside to help the Packers run defense. After the season, head coach Mike McCarthy said Matthews would be moving back to his position on the outside next year.

Matthews told Tom Silverstein of the Journal Sentinel that the team told him he might be asked to play inside against next season. 

"We had an exit interview at the end of the year where we get to talk to all the coaches on ... the future of the team, the future of yourself," Matthews said. "We talked. Moving forward I see from not only our coach's expectations, but my own expectations (are there) for playing inside."

Matthews is fine with that. 

"I really enjoyed it. I enjoyed the change," he told Silverstein. "At the same time, I'm very good at getting after the quarterback off the edge, so I think there's a fine line. So, we'll see. Week in and week out you never knew if I was going to be there 100% of the snaps or only 10."
