The Green Bay Packers are re-signing cornerback Kevin King to a one-year, $6 million deal, ESPN reported Tuesday.

King, 25, has started 36 of his 41 games with the Packers, including 11 starts last season.

A 2017 second-round pick, King was an unrestricted free agent after finishing out his four-year rookie contract.

King’s career totals include 168 tackles, six interceptions, 27 passes defensed and two fumble recoveries. He had a breakout year in 2019 with five picks and 15 pass breakups.

The signing means the Packers will return their top three cornerbacks from last season’s 13-3 squad, including Pro Bowl selection Jaire Alexander and slot corner Chandon Sullivan.
