"In this minicamp, particularly the first part of this minicamp, anything that we want to try new for next season we did and we put (Gbaja-Biamila) there," Sherman said. "It helps us because we are deep at the ‘elephant' position. We're certainly not going to sit him down because of his pass-rushing skills. So if we can get a two-for-one out of him, it certainly will make my job easier coming up with a 45-man roster."
"To have have him be a backup as a linebacker, play special teams, be a pass rusher is what we're shooting for in the next two days – today and tomorrow – to see where he is and to see if he's adaptable to that type of situation."
Sherman said the Packers will experiment Thursday as well. Rookies and free agents will begin practicing with the team on Friday. The Packers will practice Saturday and Sunday before returning again in early June for the final minicamp of the off-season.
