Jordan Fuller has a pretty big connection to Green Bay

The Green Bay Packers should be in the market for a new safety. This comes as Green Bay safeties Darnell Savage, Rudy Ford, and Jonathan Owens are all set to become free agents themselves. So, the Packers have a big void to fill on the backend of their defense. This is where a player like Jordan Fuller could help them out.

Fuller, who has played for the L.A. Rams each of the past four seasons, is a free agent himself. He is an ascending player that has a real connection to a coach in Green Bay. He would be a big-time addition for the Packers if they could make a deal work. Here is why:


Very Productive When Healthy

Fuller played 16 or more games in two out of his four seasons with the Rams. When healthy, the former Super Bowl winner is incredibly productive. In those two seasons when he was fully healthy, he recorded 90 or more total tackles and at least 60 solo tackles. He recorded a career-high three forced fumbles last year and helped the Rams make the playoffs for the third time in the last four seasons. His leadership qualities and willingness to play all over the field are bonuses.


Why Green Bay is the Perfect Fit

Packers head coach Matt LaFleur worked with Rams head coach Sean McVay in Washington, when the two were both offensive assistants, and then LaFleur was the co-offensive coordinator for the Rams after McVay took over as head coach in 2017. So, LaFleur’s coaching style is similar to McVay’s. A player’s coach. Very personable and a true motivator.

Additionally, Fuller has a real connection to new Packers defensive coordinator Jeff Hafley. Hafley coached Fuller at Ohio State in 2019 when he was the team’s co-defensive coordinator. That season, Ohio State finished ranked first in the country in total defense.

So, Fuller has a past experience with Haley and is a really solid player in center field. Still just 26 years of age, perhaps a three-year deal worth $10 million annually could make sense for Fuller and Green Bay.
