King, 26, 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 this past March.
In 2021, King has appeared in 8 games for the Packers and recorded 24 tackles and one interception.
We will have more news on King as it becomes available.
