Packers Have Expressed No Interest in Davon House

Davon House

Things can change and they often do when it comes to free agency. However, up to this point, the Green Bay Packers have expressed no interest in re-signing cornerback Davon House.

That could be for any number of reasons — they don’t want him back, they think they can wait to sign him or they have other priorities. What has become clear over the past couple days is this.

The Packers are prioritizing their other free agent cornerback — Tramon Williams — over House.

Green Bay has already offered Williams a two-year, $8 million deal, which he has rejected. Meanwhile, the Packers haven’t even spoken to House.

According to Fox Sports, House has “heard nothing from Green Bay” and is “very surprised” by it.

At best, it appears House is plan B in Green Bay. At worst, the Packers have zero interest in re-signing him. In the past, this sort of radio silence usually means the Packers aren’t interested in bringing the player back. Go ahead and ask James Jones, Ryan Pickett or Johnny Jolly about that.

Like we said, things can change in hurry though.

If the Packers are unable to re-sign Williams, which is a distinct possibility, then we fully expect them to pick up the phone and give House a call. If Williams does return to Green Bay, then it appears House will be playing elsewhere in 2015.

    Its rather obvious…TED THOMPSON IS TRYING TO DESTROY THE PACKERS!!! This strange guy has finally flipped out….i just heard this morning on ESPN radio how smart he was, best run teams, Packers, Seattle, and New England…someones lying!!!…I heard he’s trying to drop out of the first two rounds of the draft so he can pick a running back…my uncle works at a packer bar in Appleton he heard a player say That McCarthy is furious for having play calling jerked out from under him…

      Sarcasm is not really conveyed well in print. Hard to know if you’re serious or not.

    My concern is in losing both of them. I think we have to keep one or the other. Goodson has not inspired any confidence.

    It makes sense to let House test the market. House is a classic boom or bust pick up, and therefore his value is entirely determined by whoever, if anyone, is interested in him. If the market is cold for him, the Packers could still be in play.

    The Packers, TT maybe in particular, has in the past not been a big fan of guys who have missed significant time due to injury. That may be the big strike against House being resigned. See Cullen Jenkins…

    I would like to see House re-signed. He is physically talented – at least enough to be the nickle or dime, and can fill in as a starter in a pinch. I wouldn’t call him a “shut down” guy, but I don’t expect that he is looking for “shut down” money anyway. Of course, he is just now finishing his D3 rooking contract, so he would definitely like to sign for some guaranteed money just so he won’t have to be pushing bags at the airport should his career suddenly come to an unforeseen conclusion.

    I’m pretty sure that whatever House’s # might be (“I think I’m a starter and deserve starter money”), there are other FA prospects out there at that same or lower number. Ones that might be able to actually cover someone if they’re doing something other than running straight downfield.

    Guy has the heaviest feet for a CB I’ve ever seen.

    Davon, don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.

    “no interest” is a bit strong, right?? Maybe more a “wait and see”..
