Mike McCarthy wants to see more of Micah Hyde
by Larry Hartstein |

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said he wants defensive back Micah Hyde on the field all the time. As a rookie Hyde served as the No. 3 corner and made 55 tackles, adding two passes defended and a forced fumble.

"As far as Micah Hyde, I’m going to say it again, make sure we’re clear: Micah Hyde deserves the opportunity to be an every-down player on our defense," McCarthy said, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "And as we go into 2014, that’s our responsibility as a coaching staff to create those competitive opportunities for him to get that done.

"I got to a point in the season where Micah was standing on the sidelines too much. He’s a good football player and I thought he deserved the opportunity to compete to play. And it’s tough to do when you’re a rookie because you get into camp and you’re trying to build packages. … We’re going to give Micah the opportunity to play on all three downs – whether that’s corner, nickel, dime, safety, that’s the versatility I think he brings to our football team."

Micah Hyde might play safety, too
by Larry Hartstein |

Packers cornerback Micah Hyde could move to safety in some personnel groupings, enabling him to stay on the field all three downs, reports "Micah is to me a multiple-position player," coach Mike McCarthy said at the NFL scouting combine.

"I'd like to see Micah compete to play all three downs on defense, so if there's a personnel group that he has to play safety, yeah that's an option."

Hyde served as the third corner as a rookie, making 55 tackles, defending two passes and forcing a fumble.

Safety is Green Bay's weakest link
by Larry Hartstein |

Packers starting safeties Morgan Burnett and M.D. Jennings combined for zero interceptions last season, the first time that's happened in Green Bay since at least the 1950s, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Every other NFL team got an interception from a safety on its roster.

"We just didn't get it done and I don't think that was a lack of ability, because the ability is there," safeties coach Darren Perry told the paper. "We just have to make sure we're consistent."

Burnett led the team with three fumble recoveries, but also paced the Packers with 17 missed tackles. Coach Mike McCarthy said immediately after the season that he wants more "impact players" on defense.

Green Bay could give a longer look to Sean Richardson or Micah Hyde, or address the safety position through free agency and the draft.
