Christopher Walsh reports for PackersNews.com LB Torrance Marshall remains the starter at MLB for the team, at least for now. "I have an idea about Torrance, he’s given us everything he has,” coach Mike Sherman said. “He’s worked extremely hard, he meets (with coaches) daily, not just mini-camps." The Packers are expected to bring in a veteran MLB, even if Marshall continues to impress. Currently, Marshall’s backup would be Chris Gizzi. The Packers will be studying the June 1 releases. They also have the option of waiting for training camp to try and make a trade or pick up a released player. "There isn’t another (middle) linebacker, so right now it’s my spot,” Marshall said.
