Packers And Micah Hyde Reportedly Interested In A Reunion

This should get Packers fans on their feet. There is a report out there that former Packers safety and current free agent Micah Hyde may be interested in a return to Green Bay. According to Third Down Thursday’s M.J. Hurley, the Packers and current Bills free agent safety Micah Hyde have “real mutual interest” in a reunion for the 2024 season.

Hyde, a fifth-round pick (159th overall) of the Packers back in 2013, played nearly four full seasons in Green Bay before joining the Buffalo Bills for seven seasons. The former Iowa Hawkeye would go on to be named an All-Pro twice while in Buffalo.

Bringing Hyde back to Green Bay would be a wise move by GM Brian Gutekunst and Co. Green Bay has lost two of its free agent safeties already to other teams. Five-year starter Darnell Savage joined the Jacksonville Jaguars on a three-year deal, and Jonathan Owens signed a multi-year deal with the rival Bears.  Additionally, Rudy Ford is also unsigned. Green Bay needs another safety, especially an established one to play alongside new signee Xavier McKinney.

In his four seasons in Green Bay, Hyde showed that he was an ascending player. He recorded nearly 230 tackles and eight interceptions. He also returned three punts back for touchdowns.

With former secondaries coach and new defensive coordinator Jeff Hafley in place, along with the great addition of McKinney, Green Bay has a real opportunity to make their safeties room elite. However, Hyde is 33 years of age. So, he might not be as fast and instinctive as he once was. But, he is still a solid safety that brings leadership and strong experience. He has been a member of so many division championship teams and playoff runs over the years. Green Bay could use that. A two-year deal worth around $10 million makes plenty of sense for both sides.
