When is a transition to a new position not really a transition? When it's Clay Matthews moving back to outside linebacker.

The Green Bay Packers have their Pro Bowler back at his natural spot for the first time since midway through the 2014 season, when coach Mike McCarthy deemed it necessary to move Matthews to inside linebacker to help defensive coordinator Dom Capers' struggling run-stopping unit.

They stuck with Matthews at inside linebacker all of last year, but immediately after the season McCarthy declared that Matthews would return to his original spot. Or, as Matthews calls it, his "natural position."
