Packers In Defensive Spotlight: Brenton Cox
For similar reasons as Ford, Brenton Cox finds himself squarely in the spotlight as the Packers gear up for their second preseason game against the Patriots. The undrafted outside linebacker has been a captivating presence throughout training camp, catching the attention of coaches and fans alike.
With Rashan Gary’s return, the outside linebacker position is in the midst of a fierce competition for roster spots. Cox has a unique opportunity to showcase his skills and solidify his place on the team. His explosiveness off the edge and ability to disrupt passing plays has turned heads during practices.
The upcoming preseason game presents Cox with a chance to translate his training camp performances onto the field, demonstrating his capacity to make impactful plays in a live-game setting. As the Packers evaluate their defensive lineup, Cox’s performance against the Patriots could play a pivotal role in determining whether he makes the initial roster.
