Impending free agent CB Davon House said he’s ready to start in the NFL, but added that he would like to do so for the Packers next year.
“The dream would be to stay here if they want me,” House said, via Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “I know I can start in this league. That’s what I want to do. Start and help my team. It sucks, like against the Seahawks, overtime and I’m not on defense. It hurts. You lose the game and (think) I could’ve done something and I’m on the sideline.
“I truly believe my film says it’s time.”
The problem for House and the Packers is the fact that they will also have to make a decision regarding Tramon Williams, who will be a free agent as well.
Williams has been a starter for Green Bay for several years now and has played pretty well the past few seasons.
The Packers already have a number of cornerbacks under contract for next year, so it appears as though they’re likely to retain, at most, one of these two players.
House, 25, has finished his rookie contract and is now in line be an unrestricted free agent in the coming months.
This past season, House appeared in 13 games and recorded 28 tackles, one interceptions, a forced fumble and 10 pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 43 cornerback out of 108 qualifying players.
Williams, 31, signed a signed a four-year, $33 million contract that included $10,895,000 guaranteed with the Packers back in 2011. At this point in his career, it’s clear that he’ll have a reduced salary next season.
In 2014, Williams appeared in all 16 games and recorded 71 tackles, three interceptions, a fumble recovery and 13 pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 34 cornerback out of 108 qualifying players.
