The Green Bay Packers have won three games in a row and have inserted themselves directly into the NFC playoff picture. Following Week 13, the Packers currently sit in the seventh and final playoff seed. Three strong wins against the Los Angeles Chargers, Detroit Lions, and Kansas City Chiefs have instilled a level of confidence in this team that could make them a real threat come the post-season.
In order to get to the post-season, the Packers decided to add a veteran Super Bowl Champion to their defense.
The Green Bay Packers Added Defensive Back David Long Following Week 13 Win Against The Kansas City Chiefs
Jordan Sigler of Wisconsin Sports Heroics first reported it for our site:
According to Ian Rapoport with the NFL Network, the Packers were awarded cornerback David Long off waivers after the Carolina Panthers released him last week. Former Packers team captain Adrian Amos cleared waivers after he and the New York Jets mutually parted ways Friday.
The Rams drafted Long in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft. He won Super Bowl LVI with the Rams. Long spent time with the Las Vegas Raiders this season before joining the Panthers in November. Long has 96 total tackles and one interception for his NFL career.
The Packers needed depth at cornerback more than safety. However, many Packers fans hoped for a reunion with Amos after the Jets released him.

It will be interesting to see what kind of role the newest defensive back plays on the team.
