Rollins was a second-round pick of the Packers back in 2015, and he proceeded to play three seasons for the organization. The cornerback looked solid during his first two years in the league, combining for 72 tackles, 14 passes defended, and three interceptions in 27 games (14 starts). Rollins was third on the Packers’ depth chart heading into 2017, but a leg injury ended up limiting him to only six games.
Last preseason, the Packers tried moving the cornerback to safety, and they also gave him some reps as a punt returner. Rollins couldn’t emerge in either role, and following a hamstring injury at the end of the preseason, he was placed on injured reserve. Green Bay ended up releasing him with an injury settlement, and he quickly caught on with the Cardinals. However, he didn’t see the field before being released in mid-December.
The Bears have already added a pair of defensive backs via free agency in safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and cornerback Buster Skrine. If Rollins were to join Chicago, he’d be competing with the likes of Sherrick McManis, Kevin Toliver, and Jonathon Mincy to be the team’s fourth corner.
