The Green Bay Packers are working to secure their secondary for the 2023 season. They need help at safety to bolster a unit that has been one of the better parts of the defense in recent memory. The Packers have secured a lot of talent at safety and cornerback during that time, and a recent member of the secondary is signing with the Pittsburgh Steelers this offseason.

Sullivan was signed by the Packers in 2019 and spent three seasons in Green Bay before signing with the Minnesota Vikings last season. Per WSH Media files, Sullivan’s best moments in Green Bay were winning important games with his teammates:
“My top three moments with the Packers are making it to the NFC Championship two years in a row. That was really special. We won a lot of games in my three years, so that has to be up there. And finally the bonds that I made with the guys in the locker room.”
Sullivan had a so-so year with the Vikings. He earned an overall grade of 55.8 by Pro Football Focus for his play in 2022. Sullivan earned 19 stops and 18 solo tackle. He forced no fumbles and intercepted no passes for the Vikings. Sullivan was targeted 91 times and gave up 72 receptions.
Sullivan will look to improve his play on a stacked Steelers defense.
