  • Packers' Carrington Valentine: Earns starting role as rookie

    Valentine tallied 44 tackles (33 solo), nine passes defended and a fumble recovery over 17 games in the 2023 regular season. The Packers saw enough from the seventh-rounder to give him a starting spot midway through his rookie season, and he held his own in the secondary. Green Bay will almost certainly be adding players this offseason at the cornerback position, so it remains to be seen what role Valentine will fill in his second campaign.

  • Packers' Carrington Valentine: Moving to backup role

    Valentine will work as a backup Sunday against Carolina with Jaire Alexander returning to action for the first time since Week 9, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. Valentine held down a starting role from Week 9 to Week 15 while Alexander and Eric Stokes both missed substantial time due to injuries. However, both Alexander and Stokes are now healthy and will take the field together Sunday for the first time all season, leaving Valentine to work in a backup role. Valentine may also see some work in the slot, though he's played just 16 snaps there so far this season.

With Douglas now gone to Buffalo, Valentine appears to be the next man up after he started in place of an injured Jaire Alexander earlier in the season. Valentine has 13 tackles (11 solo) on the year.

He broke up 11 passes to lead the team in 2022, though his technique and route recognition are lacking. Valentine will start his career as a pro on special teams, but he could develop into more over time.
