Hell, Davon House could have signed with the Green Bay Packers and immediately been their No. 1 cornerback.
Frankly, that’s how sad the state of affairs is for the Packers.
Here’s a guy who was basically benched — he played just over 200 snaps in 2016 — by the junior varsity Jacksonville Jaguars.
That said, I’ve come around on House. He’s not a tackler, but who is among the Packers’ current cornerback group?
He was pretty damn good in coverage in 2015, though. That was his first season in Jacksonville, when they let him be their No. 1 corner. During that season, he knocked down 23 passes.
That’s an amazing number.
Frankly, as Rob pointed out, the Jaguars waste talent. It’s why they’re a perennial JV squad.
At any rate, it now looks like House isn’t going to come back to the Packers.
More reason for depression: source says House will sign soon. But not #Packers.

Nah, let’s not overreact. House would have only potentially made the Packers’ sucktacular secondary slightly better.
He isn’t/wasn’t/won’t be the replacement for Sam Shields the team needs.
