Why 2 veterans can be replaced in the Green Bay secondary

Drafting both Eric Stokes and Shemar Jean-Charles was all a part of Green Bay GM Brian Gutekunst’s plan to upgrade their already-strong secondary that is in desperate need of cornerback depth. Needing to find that next solid option alongside Jaire Alexander, both options could easily slide into long-term, high-impact roles very soon.

Both Kevin King and Josh Jackson were thought to be capable options to take on that role opposite of Alexander, and while King has succeeded the most, both guys certainly have been producing lackluster results, forcing the hand of the front office to go out and bring in other options.
