Quotable

“I feel like Green Bay got a big steal with me because I have a lot of upside to me. I’m a big corner. I still have a lot of room to improve.”

-Davon House



“We like his skill set. He’s one of those guys who has the height, weight and speed we look for because we experienced, as late as the Super Bowl, that you can’t ever have enough corner-type guys who can go out and cover.”

-Dom Capers, Packers defensive coordinator
