The News-Chronicle reports new Green Bay Packers linebackers coach Mark Duffner said he will have a better idea of what deficiencies require attention in the next couple weeks at the team's linebacking position.

"All I do know is the guy has had a phenomenal professional career, and it would be a privilege to work with him."
