Capers to run Green Bay Packers defense

GREEN BAY, Wis., Jan. 20 (UPI) -- New Green Bay Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers indicates he will change the team from a 4-3 to a 3-4 defense.

"I've made the transition many times with different personnel and going into teams that have been 4-3 teams," Capers said in an interview with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "How gradual you evolve into the 3-4 always depends on your personnel."
