A long-time Green Bay Packers cornerback has decided to hang up his cleats as a member of the team. Davon House is calling it a career at 30 years old.
The Los Angeles native was taken in the fourth round of the 2011 NFL Draft. He spent his college career at New Mexico State, and was selected to two All-WAC First-teams in his final two college seasons. He wound up spending the four years of his career in Green Bay.
House went to the Jacksonville Jaguars, where he spent two seasons. There, he played under his former New Mexico State head coach DeWayne Walker, who coached defensive backs for the Jaguars at the time. He was released after the 2017 season.
He rejoined the Packers the following year, starting 12 games for the team in 2017. He stayed on through 2018, playing three games for the team, which would prove to be the final three games of his NFL career. He missed the bulk of the season with a shoulder injury, and went on injured reserve in late September. After being out of football in 2019, he decided to sign a one-day contract and retire as a Green Bay Packer today.
🙏 I can really say I’ll be a packer for life. https://t.co/uSHg4tksPF
