CB Chandon Sullivan

Teams in need of a slot cornerback may consider signing Chandon Sullivan, who spent three seasons with the Green Bay Packers.

Sullivan played in five games as a rookie for the Philadelphia Eagles after signing as an undrafted free agent. He got an opportunity with the Packers in 2019. He impressed in his first season, playing well enough to earn a starting job in 2020.

He would end up starting 20 games for Green Bay over the next two seasons, making 10 pass defenses and four interceptions. That included a pick-six against the Detroit Lions in 2020.

After spending three seasons in Green Bay, Sullivan signed a one-year deal with the Minnesota Vikings in 2022. He featured in all 17 games, starting 10, while making a career-best seven pass defenses.

Sullivan is a solid starting slot corner. Still only 26 years old, teams in need of more depth in the secondary should consider signing him.

A reunion with the Packers doesn’t seem likely, but it shouldn’t be long before Sullivan finds a new team.

Are there any former players you would like to see Green Bay re-sign this offseason? They still have big decisions to make with some of this year’s free agents, including Mason Crosby and Adrian Amos.
