Breaking: Green Bay Packers Controversial Defensive Addition After Missing 6 Games.

Green Bay Packers Aaron Jones

The Green Bay Packers have not played well on defense as of late. Allowing yards, giving up chunk plays, and losing winnable games, this unit has faced a lot of scrutiny. For defensive coordinator Joe Barry, his job security is at the very least, under heavy fire for the remaining games, but the latest news may offer some hope.

Green Bay Packers Long Awaited Return

After a lengthy rest from play due to injury, Jaire Alexander is expected to play after successfully going through warmups, and is ‘ready to go’.

The addition back to the lineup does not come without much discussion and debate. Some have speculated that Jaire Alexander has given up on the team, not wanting to play in this Green Bay Packers  defensive scheme.

One thing is for certain though, this secondary needs help. And when fully healthy, Jaire Alexander is a talented roster piece that can solidify a Green Bay Packers unit that is deeply in need of help.

Green Bay Packers Facing The Panthers

The return marks a game against a Carolina Panthers team that has struggled in all phases of football this year. Looking closer to a team that is bound for a number one overall pick, even that aspect is something that the franchise has messed up.

The two time Pro Bowl selection is getting a chance to play in what is something of a homecoming for him. Jaire Alexander is playing in Charlotte, where he also played as a high schooler. It is possible that he wanted to make sure that he could play in front of friends and family from that area, if nothing else his time table that allowed him to come back from injury has lined up perfectly for his playing in a once again familiar area.

Bottom line, this provides an excellent opportunity for Jaire Alexander to get some live reps in, help is in game conditioning, and see how he fits in to this system again. With many holes, missed tackles, and frankly puzzling assignments, it will be very interesting to see how Jaire Alexander plays today.If the Green Packers play the way that they have been playing against opponents then his shoulder will be tested today. With the space that this secondary his allowing against receivers, he will be asked to close a lot of space, and make open field tackles.
