5. Demetri Goodson, Cornerback
The Packers are currently carrying nine cornerbacks on their roster as a result of drafting Jaire Alexander and Joshua Jackson. While that’s good for their depth at the top of their position, it means people who originally could’ve or have made the roster in the past are likely in trouble this time around.
As is the case with Demetri Goodson.
Goodson was taken in the sixth round of the 2014 NFL Draft and technically should’ve been a free agent by now. Unfortunately, he suffered an injury in November of 2016 and missed over a year of football which means his contract “tolls” for another season. Thus, he’s eligible to play one more season for Green Bay under his rookie contract.
Unless he’s released which is the case in this scenario. Given the talent on the roster and the fact he hasn’t played since 2016, Goodson has an uphill battle to climb. A battle he ends up losing.
