Barnett says time with Packers is over

It looks like linebacker Nick Barnett is done in Green Bay.

Barnett was among the first Packers players to return to Lambeau Field on Tuesday morning. He left without talking with reporters, but tweeted that he had met with team officials and then thanked everyone ”for the great 8 years.”

Barnett says he was happy to be part of the team’s run to the Super Bowl championship last season and Green Bay will always be special to him.

Wide receiver Brett Swain and tight end Tom Crabtree also were among the early arrivals. The Packers open training camp Friday and have their first practice Saturday.
