The Green Bay Packers are in desperate need of some cornerback help and one guy that could provide it is Davon House.
House was drafted by the Packers back in 2012 and then signed a big free agent deal with Jaguars following the 2015 season.
Yet, the deal didn’t work out and according to ESPN and others, House has been released.
That leaves the Packers free to sign House and that is something that Ted Thompson and Green Bay should pursue immediately.
In no way am I saying that House is going to be some kind of savior, but he can help. When he left Green Bay, he was playing like a legitimate starting corner.
Who knows what caused him to fail in Jacksonville, but if he came back to Green Bay and excelled it would be a huge boon for the Packers.
For one, bringing back House wouldn’t cost the Packers much money and since he was cut, it wouldn’t hurt them with compensatory picks.
Certainly more talent needs to be added to the cornerback position, maybe an early draft pick or another free agent, but adding House is the kind low risk, high reward move the Packers need to make, but have avoided too much in the past.
House is big, physical and he can run. He’s an ideal fit in Dom Capers defense and he can be had on the cheap.
There are a bunch of reasons to make the move and few reasons I can see not too.
It’s time for Thompson to act, for the betterment of his football team.
