“Mutual interest” between Packers and Davon House

AP

The Packers weren’t going to pay Davon House when he was an unrestricted free agent, but now that he’s free again, they’re interested again.

According to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com, there’s “mutual interest” between the Packers and the former Jaguars cornerback for a return.

House only made it through two years of his four-year, $24.5 million deal with the Jags. And now that he was cut, it won’t cost the Packers in terms of the compensatory pick formula to reel him back in.

When injuries hit their secondary last year, they were forced to play a number of young players who were in over their heads, but House is at least a known commodity.

    great, now they’ll only allow 4 passing TDs per game…..

    I think everyone in Titletown would welcome Mr House back into the fold. I hope to see you in green and gold before too long. I think your old number is even still available.

    Maybe we shouldn’t have let him walk in the first place. Casey Hayward as well…

    It’s OK to pay your own players when they deserve it there Ted….

    House wasn’t that good when he was here. Why make a play for another mediocre CB?

    This is not the first time you see a guy leave in free agency for a bigger contract but not see the contract through and actually get all the dollars. Would be curious to see if there was actually a gain to the player or if he would have done just as good or better had he taken less to stay put and received the entire contract through or at least more of it than he saw in free agency. Not saying any player should take less that’s totally his business, but I’d be curious to see those numbers.

    ===================================
    And yet, Green Bay wins the division and goes to the NFC Championship Game while the Vikings finish .500 and stay home.

    how far did those compensatory picks get you last year? playoff embarrassment again, eh? nice.

    If I were pathetic enough the be a cheeser I’d hope to god that Thompson better sign somebody/anybody that wasn’t cut and can actually play defensive back.

    Love this idea. They need a solid veteran presence and this guy knows the system and has played well here before. Do it Ted.

    Packers let him walk because he wasn’t all that good. Jags kicked him loose because he wasn’t worth keeping.
    Hard to believe anyone would see him as even part of the answer.

    NFC North Champs and played in the NFC Championship game. I’m not at all embarrassed.

    Over the last seven years the Packers have won the NFCN five times and have finished second two times. Meanwhile, the Vikings have finished dead last twice and in third place three times.

    Over the last 12 years Vikings have won a grand total of one playoff game while the Packers have won two in the last two months.

    Now tell me, who should be embarrassed?

    Playoff embarrassment? Seriously? Do any of you Viking trolls have any shame whatsoever?

    The Vikings own the all-time NFL record for the most postseason losses in the history of the NFL, including all pre-merger teams when only “eight” teams played.

    And believe it or not, that’s not the worst!

    The Vikings also own, outright, the all-time NFL record for the MOST ONE-AND-DONE APPEARANCES IN THE POSTSEASON!

    Eat it and digest it. You’ll feel better. The best way to describe this pathetic and futile position is:

    WIDE LEFT.

    Only by using Barney logic would going to the NFC Championship game 2 out of the last 3 seasons be an embarrassment.
    While finishing 3rd in the division, twice, over the same amount of time be equated with success.

    You Heidis do understand the basic concepts of embarrassment and success, don’t you?

    Maybe the Vikes can sign him to play LB or Left Tackle for them.

    Well played my fellow Packer brethren….well played. God it’s good to wake up every day a Packer’s fan.

    Fish in a barrel.

    It must be exhausting to want something so badly you’ll give up your self respect to get it.

    packer fans would know.

    Let’s see, ex packer, check.
    Can probably make a 27 yard kick, check.
    Minnesota will make a play for him.

    He would also be the best offensive lineman on the vikings.
