Kyed adds that King turned down contract offers in order to stay committed to his plan of returning to full health, after dealing with a concussion, COVID-19, hip, knee, and shoulder injuries in 2021.

King, 27, is a former second-round pick of the Packers back in 2017 after they elected to trade down with the Saints. For moving back a few spots, the Packers picked up an additional fourth-round pick that they used on OLB Vince Biegel.

King played out the final year of his four-year, $7.08 million contract before returning to Green Bay on a one-year contract.

In 2021, King appeared in 10 games for the Packers and recorded 29 tackles and one interception.
