The Return of Davon Houses Gives GB’s Secondary A Lift
It was a busy Tuesday with Green Ba Packers as they brought in their fourth new player of the offseason. This player is familiar with the surroundings as Green Bay signed former Packer Davon House to a one-year deal. Jacksonville Jaguars released House after two seasons, and Packers bring him back in a cost-efficient manner. The Packers corners desperately needed some veteran leadership, and House brings that along with experience of how Packers secondary works at the highest level.
House is a big corner which is something Green Bay lacked the last couple of years. How he made big free agent money two years ago was going up against big receivers like Alshon Jeffery and Calvin Johnson. Both are no longer in the NFC North, but House will get the assignment of a physical receiver. People forget he shut down Julio Jones for a half before getting hurt then subsequently, Jones went off. House will be a solid press boundary corner which will knock either Damarious Randall or Quinten Rollins back inside. That’s a good thing for Green Bay, and hopefully, they add another veteran to solidify the back end.
House said the reason why things went haywire in Jacksonville was they changed schemes in the secondary, therefore, House could no longer be a press corner. That makes sense. I’ve point out too that Jaguars probably adjusted to what Jalen Ramsey’s strengths were as he’s one of the best young defensive players in the National Football League. House goes back to the place where he’ll have all the opportunities to press and run.
