The Packers drafted Ha Ha Clinton-Dix in the first round this year, but they may not be done adding at safety.
Former Bills, Ravens, Jets and Broncos safety Jim Leonhard wants to continue playing this season and the Wisconsin native told WQOW that he has spoken to his home state’s team about donning their uniform.
“It would mean a lot, but we’ve had a lot of conversations with teams, Green Bay being one of them,” Leonhard said, via CheeseheadTV.com. “They’re a great organization, I’d love to play for them but it hasn’t worked out up to now. You never know what can happen in the future, but we’ll see. They’re a great organization and it’s always fun to see the fans and have a lot of family that follows them closely.”
Leonhard played all 16 games for the Bills last season, starting seven times and picking off four passes. The Packers have Morgan Burnett back from last year to go with Clinton-Dix and Micah Hyde, who has made the move from cornerback, so there’s not a particularly pressing need for another safety. That explains why nothing has worked out up to now and why Leonhard, who is also an experienced punt returner, may have to look elsewhere if he’s going to play in 2014.
