-- The Green Bay Packers will have their foundation of veteran cornerbacks in 2018.
According to Eric Edholm of Pro Football Weekly, the Packers and cornerback Davon House agreed to a one-year deal that'll keep him on the team through next season.
I’m sure it’s out there now

House and the Packers' brass were scheduled to meet last week to discuss their future, and evidently, those talks favored a return for House.

He'll be paired with Tramon Williams, who the Packers just re-signed last month, as the two veterans on the depth chart expected to see a good portion of playing time. Williams, however, is coming off of a fantastic year at age 34 with the Arizona Cardinals. House, alternatively, played in just 12 games after battling through injury late in the season.

House finished the season with one interception -- nabbed from New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees -- and six passes defended. He also finished with 37 tackles while playing in various positions on the defense, whether it as the starting boundary corner or scarcely in the box as a hybrid linebacker.

With House now back in the mix, the Packers now have eight cornerbacks on their current roster. That's without the one -- or potentially two -- they'll draft in the early rounds of the draft in two weeks. House's return doesn't mask the drastic need for more starting talent at the position.

What House does bring back to the Packers' cornerback room, is experience -- and that's the most important trait he offers aside from his on-field abilities. Rather than an undrafted, inexperienced player filling in the shoes of a starter in the event of injury, someone with starting experience -- such as House -- can fill the void.

The Packers traded cornerback Damarious Randall to the Cleveland Browns last month in exchange for DeShone Kizer and a swapping of draft positioning, so the need for cornerbacks is evident.


Dude fights, but he gets beat. Fringe starter. Needs to prove he can stay healthy.

Will add some much needed depth to the position, hope we still draft a CB or two.

What this does is enables us to go BPA, and if it turns out to be a corner we can develop him until its time. Saves from the inevitable disappointment of thrusting a rookie in and expecting the world.

I've been waiting for this. I'd still like to sign that former saint Breaux that visited. Is he still available?

Tramon and Davon are band aids. We still need our future secondary CB's, along with Kevin King to make that hopeful second year jump.

Zero2Cool (19-Oct) : Someone take screen shot of NFL picks leader board. I won't be this close to #1 ever again!!
gbguy20 (19-Oct) : i know. no point in firing mike now anyway, we're just a few weeks away from the time of year where he normally figures his shit out
beast (18-Oct) : When Mike Pettine had a shot, he did grab the (now) 49ers head coach to be his (then) OC, I wonder who Pettine would hire now.
beast (18-Oct) : A couple of years ago, was a great time to find a good young offensive mind... but they're been largely taken up... I so would of hired the 49ers or Rams head coaches.
Zero2Cool (18-Oct) : We aren't the Penguins, we can't fire the head guy, then win the championship.
Zero2Cool (18-Oct) : i don't think the Packers ever function like that
gbguy20 (18-Oct) : if we fire MM now his replacement would have the bye week to get acquainted with his new position.
