Packers Re-Sign Two Players

The Green Bay Packers have re-signed both cornerback Corey Ballentine and safety Rudy Ford, the team announced on Monday. 

Ballentine, who joined the Packers last season on the practice squad in late September and was elevated on the active roster in November, went on to play eight games for Green Bay in 2022-23. He registered an assisted tackle on defense, and a forced fumble on special teams. 

The 26-year-old from Jamaica was drafted in the sixth round by the Giants in 2019. He was waived by the Giants on November 10, 2020 and spent time with the Jets, Lions, Falcons, and Cardinals practice squads before finding a home in Wisconsin. 

Ford, who was drafted by the Cardinals as a sixth-rounder in 2017 and spent two seasons there, played for the Eagles (two seasons), and Jags (one season) before signing with the Packers on Aug. 31, 2022. 

Ford has appeared in 73 games (12 starts) for his career tallying two tackles for loss, four interceptions, and 100 tackles. 

Last season for Green Bay, Ford appeared in all 17 games with six starts and finished with a career high three interceptions (87 yards on INT returns).
