A Kansas State product, the 26-year-old Beisel (6-foot-3, 238 pounds) was one of the Chiefs' better tacklers and is an exceptional special teams player. He played all three linebacker positions in 11 games for the Chiefs last year. He started nine games mainly at middle linebacker and finished with 43 tackles and 2.5 sacks, both career highs.
The Packers will look at Beisel, first of the Chiefs' two picks in the fourth round (107th overall) of the 2001 NFL Draft, to fill a backup spot at outside linebacker. Strong-side linebacker Hannibal Navies is an unrestricted free agent. Navies started the past two seasons in Green Bay, but he has received little interest from the Packers and other teams in free agency.
