House agreed to a one-year deal with the Packers on Tuesday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. House was cut by the Jaguars prior to free agency beginning but will now return to the team that he spent his first four NFL seasons with. The cornerback likely will take on a bigger role in Green Bay the second time around, as the team is thin in the secondary and recently let defensive backs Micah Hyde and Sam Shields walk. House accrued 60 tackles and four interceptions in 16 games with the Jaguars two years ago, but only 17 tackles and no interceptions in 16 games in 2016.
House was released by the Jaguars on Monday, ESPN's Michael DiRocco reports. House, who signed a four-year, $24.5 million contract with Jacksonville in 2015, totaled 60 tackles, 23 pass deflections, and four interceptions in his first year with the team. However, after the Jags added first-rounder Jalen Ramsey and free agent Prince Amukamara last offseason, House lost his starting job and finished with merely 17 tackles this past year. For someone who was scheduled to earn $6 million in both of the next two seasons, that production fell far short of the expectations established for House, thus explaining his release. At 27 years old, House should garner interest on the open market as a veteran cornerback with starting experience.
House (illness) is not listed on the Jaguars' Week 3 inactives report. House came down with an illness late in the week that jeopardized his status for Sunday's game. Nevertheless, he should get the start against the Ravens opposite Jalen Ramsey.
House (illness) was added to the Jaguars injury report on Saturday and is questionable to play in Week 3, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports. House didn't practice on Thursday with a hamstring ailment, but was taken off the injury report after practicing in full on Friday. However, he since has come down with a sickness. His status will be confirmed prior to kickoff.
House (hamstring) was not included on the Jaguars' final Week 3 injury report. House missed practice on Thursday due to a hamstring injury but was able to practice in full on Friday. Now that he's been removed from the injury report he should be expected to play without restriction on Sunday. Look for him and Jalen Ramsey to be the team's starting corners.
