Up to this point, GM Brian Gutekunst has decided not to bring back veteran cornerback Tramon Williams, who played at a high level in 2019 and remains a free agent. Instead, they’ve shown confidence in a mostly young and inexperienced cornerback room, outside of starters Kevin King and Jaire Alexander.
It seemed like a head-scratching decision not to re-sign Williams, but nobody knows this roster better than Gutekunst and LaFleur, and it looks like they may be right to have confidence in their young cornerbacks.
Chandon Sullivan is the most likely replacement for Williams in the slot, but a player on the roster bubble who has a real chance of making the final 53 is Kabion Ento.
Ento’s name has been coming up quite a bit this week from reporters at training camp. Aaron Nagler of Cheesehead TV had high praise for Ento following Thursday’s practice, noting that he impressed in coverage during the team drills.
Ento played wide receiver in college and spent most of last season on the Packers’ practice squad. He’s now looking to prove why he should make the 53-man roster at the cornerback position. And so far, Ento has impressed. He has a good chance of securing the number six spot at cornerback.
