Friday Curds: Packers still have work to do at cornerback

Herb Waters’ return is nice, but Brian Gutekunst still needs to add talent at the position. The Green Bay Packers have added a receiving weapon to their offense and signed a potential difference-maker for the front seven in the opening days of free agency. However, the trade of Damarious Randall to the Browns exacerbated the concerns over the cornerback position, and the team has yet to address that spot by bringing in any players from outside the organization. The team did make one roster move at the position on Thursday, but it was to bring back a player from the 2017 roster who had...
