Cornerback Davon House is returning to Green Bay. Terms of the deal were not officially disclosed, but league sources put the deal at a one year contract worth roughly $3.5 million dollars. House was drafted by the Packers in 2011, where he started 14 games in four years and intercepted two passes. He signed with Jacksonville in 2015, where he started 20 games and intercepted four passes, but lost his starting job last year and was released by the team earlier this month.
The Packers officially announced the re-signing of linebacker Jayrone Elliott. Elliott signed with Green Bay as an undrafted rookie free agent out of the University of Toledo in 2014, and has played in 38 regular season games over the last three seasons. He has totaled 33 tackles, four sacks and an interception.
Former Packers running back Eddie Lacy is joining the Seattle Seahawks. Lacy made the announcement on social media on Tuesday with a picture of a Seahawks jersey with his name on it. Lacy’s agent also confirmed the move on Twitter. Lacy was the Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2013, when he rushed for 1,178 yards and 11 touchdowns. He also ran for more than 1,100 yards in 2014, but has since been slowed by injuries and lost favor with Packers coach Mike McCarthy at times. Last season, Lacy played in only five games, sidelined by ankle problems.
Former Packers linebacker Datone Jones has signed with division rival Minnesota. Terms of the contract were not disclosed, but multiple league sources say its a one year deal worth $3.75 million, with incentives that could push the total to $5 million. Jones will reportedly move back to the defensive line in the Vikings’ 4-3 defense, after playing linebacker in Green Bay last year. Jones was a first round pick of the Packers in 2013, and had just one sack last year and totaled nine and a half sacks in his career.
