Packers With Most On The Line In Training Camp: Eric Stokes
Eric Stokes isn’t fighting for a spot on the roster or even for his place in the NFL, as is the case for Rhyan or Savage. Yet, he finds himself in a critical battle to retain his starting position.
Currently on the PUP list with aspirations of making a timely return for Week 1, Stokes has already witnessed his starting cornerback role taken over. Green Bay has reinstated Rasul Douglas to that pivotal position alongside Jaire Alexander, and this tandem has been on fire in training camp.
Given Stokes’ forte for playing on the outside, he may risk finding himself edged out of the cornerback competition. A swift recovery and a prompt return to the field are imperative for him to reaffirm his capabilities.
