The Green Bay Packers are one of the NFL's premier teams, as their squad features some of the most recognized names in the league.

It didn't take long for Packers General Manager Brian Gutekunst to make a decision on his depleted inside linebackers group.

They have traded CB Lenzy Pipkins to the Indianapolis Colts for LB Antonio Morrison. Morrison should compete with Oren Burks at one of the starting positions now that Jake Ryan has been lost for the season to a knee injury.

Authorities also charged Sonoiki with helping to facilitate Kendricks' trades, according to the Inquirer . Kendricks goes on to say that he was "drawn to the allure" of being more than a football player.

Morrison should prove to be a welcome addition to GB, with his stats speaking for themselves as he enters his third season in the NFL. He had 17 tackles, a tackle for a loss, a pass defensed and a special steams tackle in 12 games during the 2017 season.

Pipkins was originally signed by the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of Oklahoma State on May 5, 2017.

The 6-foot-1, 241-pound Morrison had notched 154 tackles and one pass defensed in 31 career contests since being selected by the Colts in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft.
