Being undrafted has ways of motivating players to give all they got on the field. For former Crimson Tide linebacker Adrian Hubbard, this motivation could eventually lead to more playing time.
Despite being sidelined with an injury, Hubbard will have an opportunity to earn more playing time once he returns. With starting linebacker Nick Perry not practicing on Thursday, he joins fellow linebackers Clay Matthews (knee) and Hubbard (groin) on the list of injured players for the Packers.
With news that the Packers have declined a fifth-year option on outside linebacker Nick Perry’s contract, Hubbard could find himself in a favorable position to be part of the team’s future plans if he can make a noticeable jump.
Despite spending all of 2014 on the Packers practice squad, Hubbard has the talent and ability to become a key role player for Green Bay in 2015. If Hubbard can stay healthy and on the field, then the sky is the limit for him and the Packers.
