They lose one of offense, they gain one on defense.
The Packers lost Eddie Lacy earlier today to the Seahawks. However, they made a huge signing that shored up the weakest part of their defense in 2016.
Cornerback Davon House has resigned with the Green Bay Packers, inking a one year contract with the team. He was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars last week in a money saving move. He had lost his starting job last season and played mainly on special teams.

House started all 16 games for Jacksonville in 2015 and was a bright young star for Green Bay his first few years in the league. He had four interceptions in 2015. House will be an immediate impact player for the Packers who owned the 31st ranked pass defense in 2016 and who released Sam Shields after he missed every game but one last season with a concussion protocol. It was obvious the team needed a much stronger secondary after giving up 34 points to the Cowboys and then 44 points to the Falcons in the playoffs. Hopefully House will be able to hang with some of the league’s top receivers.
Are you excited about Green Bay upgrading their secondary, or are you still hurting from the Lacy loss?
