    From JSOnline Blog:


    Creating competition was successful for the Pack last year, and while Popp has improved he still has had trouble with TEs.

    Another article from JSOnline on Chillar said some scouts think Chillar heads the second tier of Free Agent LBs after Lance Briggs and Calvin Pace.

    Sounds like he isn't the best pass defender. Poppinga has improved in that area, but for competition purposes or a Poppinga\Chillar combo at the position, that could be good.

    Chillar would be good, I agree.

    If he's better against the run than the pass, as the article suggests, it doesn't seem that he would be an upgrade over Poppinga.

    regardless of which guy starts, we need better depth at outside linebacker.

    Wouldn't win us a Super Bowl but it'd create for a great training camp competition between him and Poppinga.
