Packers planning to rotate three defensive backs into 'star position'

GREEN BAY - There will be no shortage of player combinations in the Green Bay Packers' secondary this season, starting with the team’s season opener Sunday against New Orleans.

As far as defensive passing game coordinator Jerry Gray is concerned, he has options depending on what team the Packers are facing, and he plans on using all of them.

The “star” or slot position is a critical piece to new defensive coordinator Joe Barry’s scheme and Gray said the three options he has for that spot are cornerback Chandon Sullivan, cornerback Jaire Alexander and safety Darnell Savage.
