The Green Bay Packers re-signed CB Kevin King. The transaction was announced Friday by General Manager Brian Gutekunst.
King, who was originally selected by the Packers in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft (No. 33 overall), has played in 41 games with 36 starts during his first four seasons. He has posted 169 tackles (129 solo), six interceptions, 34 passes defensed, six tackles for a loss, a sack, a QB hit, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. Among NFL cornerbacks who played 500-plus snaps during the 2020 regular season, King was targeted the sixth-fewest times (51) and had the eighth-fewest burns with 32 (occurs when a targeted defensive player allows a completed pass), according to Sportradar. He has started all four postseason contests he has appeared in, recording 19 tackles (14 solo), three passes defensed and a tackle for a loss.
