Over the next two weeks Kenny Clark Color Rush Jersey , Acme Packing Company will break down each position group on the Green Bay Packers and provide insight into how they performed during the 2018 season. Today, Gutekunst’s first as general manager, the Green Bay Packers tried to rebuild their secondary. That process extended to free agency, where the team brought back veteran corner Davon House after a two-year sabbatical as well as a mid-season signing of Bashaud Breeland.While both House and Breeland hit free agency this offseason, their trajectories appear decidedly different.Bashaud BreelandNFL experience: Five yearsFree-agent status: UnrestrictedExpiring contract: One-year, $790,000 ($90,000 guaranteed)2018 stats: 20 tackles, four breakups, two interceptions, one fumble recovery, one touchdownThe Packers will enter next season with Jaire Alexander, Kevin King, and Josh Jackson atop the cornerback depth chart in some order. That doesn’t preclude the team from re-signing Breeland, who made an impact on the defense during his partial season in Green Bay. Breeland generated multiple turnovers while providing valuable depth when injuries decimated the secondary.Breeland has his flaws. His lack of top-line speed and recent history lower-body injuries (a foot infection and lingering hamstring trouble in 2018) could prevent him from holding down a starting role. That could ultimately work in the Packers’ favor, limiting his market and allowing the front office to bring him back at a palatable price.Davon HouseNFL experience: Eight yearsFree-agent status: UnrestrictedExpiring contract: One-year, $915,000 ($90,000 guaranteed)2018 stats: Two tacklesThe Packers didn’t intend for Davon House to earn a large role when they re-signed the veteran corner in the offseason. House technically lived up to expectations, though not for the desired reasons. He landed on injured reserve in September with a shoulder injury and never returned.Injured or not, House seems unlikely to return to return in 2019. The young depth built up over the past few years along with the veteran’s own injury woes strongly signal that the end has arrived for House https://www.thepackersfanshop.com/Mason-Crosby-Jersey , at least in Green Bay. Over a two week span, Acme Packing Company takes a look at each position group on the Green Bay Packers and provides grades and insight on how they performed in the 2018 season. Here, we examine the cornerbacks who were new to the Packers last season.The Packers’ secondary has been a train wreck since the atrocious 2015 draft that brought in Damarious Randall, who was traded to the Browns for DeShone Kizer, and Quinten Rollins, who is all but out of the league. 2017 picks Kevin King and Josh Jones have been little help for different reasons, and so in 2018, the Packers took yet another swing at the position, bringing in a host of fresh faces, old and new. While the defense struggled overall, the cornerback position took an enormous step forward, from atrocious to solidly “meh,” anchored by a budding star and a bargain veteran in an odd situation.Jaire AlexanderHow Acquired: Drafted in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 18th overallStats: 11 passes defended, 1 interception, 66 tackles (61 solo), 3 TFL, .5 sacksAlexander was a revelation, providing a huge upgrade as the team’s number one corner and cementing himself as one of the team’s best players. Alexander wasn’t perfect, and could occasionally get himself out of position, but the positives vastly outweighed the negatives. Some growing pains were to be expected Kyler Fackrell Jersey , but the prospect of Alexander improving may be more exciting anyway. To function properly, Pettine’s defenses have generally required someone like Darrelle Revis, and while Alexander might not get to that level, he appears to be a great fit, and a great talent.Josh JacksonHow Acquired: Drafted in the second round, 45th overallStats: 10 passes defended, 0 INT, 49 tackles (39 solo), 1 TFLThere were many pundits who liked Jackson better than Alexander coming out of Iowa, but while Jackson occasionally impressed and was second on the team in passes defended, he too often struggled with speed receivers. When Jackson got frustrated, he also got grabby, and he’ll need to play a more disciplined game if he is going to succeed at this level. That said, you can see his instincts out on the field, and his worst case is probably an above average safety. The Packers can work with that. Tramon WilliamsHow Acquired: Signed as a free agent for 2 years, $10,000,000, of which $4,750,000 is guaranteedStats: 2 passes defended Josh Jackson Color Rush Jersey , 0 interceptions, 54 tackles (40 solo), 0 TFLIn Williams’ first stint as a Packer he helped lead the team to a Super Bowl championship, but his second run hasn’t been quite the same. Williams also played under Pettine in Cleveland and he was brought in to provide a solid veteran presence, and to familiarize the young players with the system. Williams is still excellent in terms of technique and reads, but his physical gifts have eroded to the point where corner is now out of the question. He showed promise with a mid-season move to safety, which may keep him in the league for another year or two, but the end is in sight. Bashaud BreelandHow Acquired: Signed as a free agent midseason for 1 year, $880,000, with $90,000 guaranteed. Stats: 4 passes defended, 2 interceptions, 20 tackles (16 solo), 1 TFLWashington decided to overhaul their secondary in 2018 by eliminating the very good Bashaud Breeland (letting him go in free agency) and cutting DJ Swearinger before trading for Ha Ha Clinton-Dix. The Packers unquestionably got the best of this de facto swap, as Breeland came on late to pose an intimidating second corner to Alexander’s lead. Breeland struggled initially as he shook off some rust, but showed his true secondary chops towards the end of the season. Breeland has an odd injury history which has made teams wary of investing too much in him, but he is likely to be a reasonably priced free agent, he’s young, and it’s clear he can still play at a high level.Tony BrownHow Acquired: Signed to practice squad after training camp; promoted to 53-man roster and given 2 year, $1 https://www.thepackersfanshop.com/Montravius-Adams-Jersey ,050,000 contractStats: 5 passes defended, 2 forced fumbles, 0 interceptions, 34 tackles (30 solo) 1 TFLMany Packer fans will remember Brown for a few boneheaded plays he made early on, but underneath those mistakes Brown had a fine season. Despite only playing a fraction of total games he was third on the team with 5 passes defended, and he was a willing (sometimes too willing) tackler. Brown needs work, but he’s extremely athletic, and he has already been more productive than a lot of recent Packer waiver fodder, and even some veteran stalwarts. Brown could bust out of the league, but if developed properly, there’s a star somewhere in there. Natrell JamersonHow acquired: Claimed off of waivers from New Orleans, signed for 4 years, $2,725,621Stats: 3 tackles (2 solo)The former Badger is a little stocky for corner, but as a hybrid Mycah Hyde type heading downhill, and a special teams ace, Jamerson brings plenty of value. Jamerson was a combine superstar and he’s built like a rock and should stick around doing the little things for quite a while.
