Another position the Packers need more depth is safety. Adrian Amos and Darnell Savage will be the team’s starters for the fourth consecutive season, but there is a lack of depth behind this duo.

Shawn Davis currently looks to be the frontrunner for the No. 3 spot at safety. He was a fifth-round pick by the Indianapolis Colts in 2021, but he has only played in one NFL game with zero snaps on defense.

One player to watch is Baltimore Ravens safety Chuck Clark.

According to a report from ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler in May, “multiple teams” showed some interest in a possible trade for Clark after the Ravens drafted safety Kyle Hamilton in the first round.

Clark has started 44 games for the Ravens over the past three seasons but could be demoted to a backup role following Hamilton’s arrival. The rookie is likely to start alongside Marcus Williams in Baltimore’s secondary.

Last season, Clark made 80 tackles, 12 pass defenses, and two interceptions. He is a talented player and has a ton of starting experience in the NFL.

Would Clark want to go from a backup role in Baltimore to something similar in Green Bay? Possibly not. It remains to be seen whether the Ravens would even entertain the idea of trading him.

But there’s no doubting how Clark could help the Packers’ defense.
