Isaac Yiadom, CB

The Packers brought in Isaac Yiadom via a trade before the start of the season, with former second-round pick Josh Jackson going to the New York Giants in return.

It wasn’t long before Yiadom had to play snaps on defense as injuries hit the Packers’ secondary. His only start of the season came in Week 6 versus the Chicago Bears.

But defensively, things didn’t go too well for Yiadom. According to Pro Football Reference, he allowed 85.7% of passes to be completed in his coverage, allowing a passer rating of 118.7.

With the emergence of rookie Eric Stokes and the arrival of Rasul Douglas in October, Yiadom’s snap counts were significantly reduced as the season went on. Between Weeks 8 and 15, Yiadom didn’t play a single defensive snap and spent all of his time on special teams.

In January, Green Bay needed to make room on the roster for Za’Darius Smith and Whitney Mercilus, who were returning from injured reserve to play in the postseason. As a result, Yiadom was released and, as of yet, hasn’t been re-signed.

This could well mean his time in Green Bay is done. The Packers have a number of free agents at cornerback so they could need to add talent at the position this offseason.
