The Green Bay Packers, desperate for defensive secondary help, have brought back a familiar face in cornerback Davon House.
This move was first reported by Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and was confirmed by NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, who provided the following contract details.

House was recently released by the Jacksonville Jaguars, who signed him to a four-year, $24.5 million contract in 2015. He was set to earn $6 million per year in his final two contract years, so it was a logical move to let him go.
A return to Green Bay, the team he played with from 2011-14, just makes too much sense. The two sides were reportedly showing “mutual interest” in a reunion last week, and he’s already familiar with the team’s defensive scheme, run by Dom Capers.
In his six-year career, House has appeared in 72 games, starting 34 and has tallied six interceptions. Hopefully his addition will help the Packers improve upon their No. 31-ranked pass defense from a year ago.
