4. Kevin King

Kevin King started the season as a starter at cornerback, but with Eric Stokes impressing and then Rasul Douglas being signed, King’s snap counts dropped as the year went on. He also struggled to stay healthy, missing seven games. King is a free agent this offseason and faces an uncertain future.

According to Pro Football Reference, King allowed 71.4 percent of passes to be completed in his coverage and gave up a passer rating of 108.9 to opposing quarterbacks.

Green Bay does have some tough decisions to make at cornerback. Douglas was outstanding after being signed in October, but he’s also a free agent. Slot corner Chandon Sullivan is also a free agent. The team should try to re-sign at least one of them.

Perhaps there’s a situation where both Douglas and Sullivan aren’t re-signed so the Packers bring King back for depth. But it does seem unlikely. Since a career-best 2019 when King led the team with five interceptions, he’s had two disappointing seasons and also struggled to stay healthy.

Green Bay’s two starters on the outside next season will be Jaire Alexander and Eric Stokes. They should try to re-sign Douglas then add some more depth in the draft.

It could mean King’s time in Green Bay comes to an end in free agency.
