GREEN BAY - The Green Bay Packers are reconnecting with an old friend.
Davon House, a fourth-round draft pick of the Packers in 2011, agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Packers, a source disclosed Tuesday. The deal will pay House around $3.5 million a year, another source said.
House, who had left the Packers to sign a four-year, $24.5 million free-agent deal in 2015, was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars on March 4.
The Packers were one of three teams interested in House, who completed a two-day visit with the Steelers on Tuesday morning.
The addition of House, who started 14 games in three years with the Packers, gives the team the veteran cornerback it had been seeking to replace Micah Hyde. House will get to compete with 2015 draft choices Damarious Randall and Quinten Rollins as well as anybody the Packers draft for a starting spot.
House started 15 of 16 games for the Jaguars in 2015, but he fell out of favor in 2016 and the Jaguars cleared $6 million in cap space when they released him.
The 6-1, 200-pound House ran the 40-yard dash in 4.44 seconds at the 2011 scouting combine and had a vertical jump of 33½ inches.
