Packers Re-Sign Free Agent CB Robert Rochelle

In one of the smaller moves during the Green Bay Packers’ offseason, they agreed to terms with backup cornerback and special-teamer Robert Rochell. He will be back in the fold for the 2024 season.

After getting drafted in the fourth round out of Central Arkansas by the Los Angeles Rams in 2021, Rochell would go on to bounce around a little bit. He’d leave the Rams after 2022 to join the practice squads of the Seattle Seahawks and Carolina Panthers. Then, he would come to Green Bay after being claimed off of waivers in 2023. During the 2023 season, Rochell would play in nine games total. He only recorded four tackles defensively but played 112 snaps on special teams.

It’s clear that Rochell is more of a developmental prospect than anything else. The former waiver claim has clearly shown the coaching staff that he has the potential to be a real contributor, at least on special teams.

Speaking of special teams, Rochell joins linebacker Kristian Welch, cornerback Corey Ballentine, tight end Tyler Davis, and cornerback Keisean Nixon as key special teams contributors who are returning to Green Bay in 2024. Rich Bisaccia will have a lot of his unit back from a season ago, which should be music to the ears of many Packers fans.

Defensively, the former Super Bowl winner now can re-join the likes of Jaire Alexander, Eric Stokes, Keisean Nixon, Corey Ballentine, and Carrington Valentine as cornerbacks playing in Green Bay in 2024. Matt LaFleur gets a versatile, developmental piece back on his team for the upcoming season.
