The Packers had no interest in one former Packer as an unrestricted free agent, but now that he is cut, they have interest to bring him back.
The Green Bay Packers weren’t willing to sign Davon House when he was an unrestricted free agent a few years ago. However, with all the injuries and the recent news of his release from the Jacksonville Jaguars, Green Bay is back as having an interest in him to return to Green Bay.
Per ESPN staff writer Rob Demovsky, there seems to be a mutual interest between both the Packers and House for a reunion of both sides.
“The Packers have contacted CB Davon House about a return to Green Bay, according to a source, and there is mutual interest. House, who spent the first four years of his career with the Packers, was just released by the Jaguars two years after he signed a four-year, $24,5 million deal in free agency. The Packers ranked 31st in passing yards allowed last season and played mostly with a trio of second-year corners — Damarious Randall, Quinten Rollins and LaDarius Gunter.”

#Packers are among the teams interested in CB Davon House, according to a source. House was released by the Jaguars yesterday.

As a fourth-round selection in 2011, House played in 40 games while registering two sacks and two interceptions in his four years as a Packers player. During his two years in Jacksonville, he played in all 32 games, while grabbing four interceptions. However, all four interceptions came during the 2015 season. This past season was a down year, forcing the Jaguars to make the move they did by cutting him this off-season.
With the injuries in Green Bay’s defense, especially in the secondary last season, House would come in as a breath of fresh air. The move would also not be a bad decision as it shouldn’t come at too high of a price tag.
Should the Packers sign House, or use the draft to fill secondary needs?
