Green Packers Star Abruptly Retires
A Green Bay Packers star abruptly retired this week.
Cornerback Davon house announced Tuesday that he is hanging up his cleats.
The 30-year-old was taken in the fourth round of the 2011 NFL Draft out of New Mexico State.
In college, he was picked to a pair of All-WAC First Teams for his junior and senior years.
House played under his former coach DeWayne Walker during his stint with the Jacksonville Jaguars, before being released in 2017.
From there he linked back up with Green Bay and started in 12 outings for the squad the same year. In 2018, that total slipped to only three games played. He subsequently missed the majority of the year with a shoulder injury and was placed on injured reserve.

This week, he signed a one-day contract with the Packers and promptly retired.
“I can really say I’ll be a packer for life,” he wrote on Twitter.
House amassed 221 total tackles, three sacks, seven picks and 54 passes defended against over the course of a career that spanned 87 games. Of that total, he ultimately started in more than half the outings he participated in.
All things considered, House is probably not the last notable Packer the organization will be saying goodbye to this offseason.
