The Green Bay Packers’ big, splashy free agent move? It looks like it might be bringing back cornerback Davon House.
House was officially released by the Jacksonville Jaguars after two seasons with the team, on Monday. The Packers have reached out to him and there is mutual interest in a reunion, according to Rob Demovsky.
Would House solve the Packers’ secondary problems? That’s doubtful.
We’ve detailed how he was demoted in Jacksonville last season, playing just over 200 snaps on the year.
This is a total Ted Thompson move, though. Since House was released and isn’t technically considered a free agent, he won’t count against the compensatory draft pick formula. He’s also not going to be expensive. So while we’d love to see Ted go out and get A.J. Bouye and solve this No. 1 cornerback situation for the foreseeable future, we also consider that a long shot.
House isn’t a No. 1, but despite his lackluster 2016 season, he was solid in 2015 for the Jaguars. He played in all 16 games, recorded 60 tackles, four interceptions and knocked down 23 passes. And besides, he couldn’t be worse than Damarious Randall, could he?
