Green Bay re-signs CB Keisean Nixon, TE Tyler DavisWes Hodkiewicz

GREEN BAY - Free agency is off and running. Here's the latest as it relates to the Packers:

CB Keisean Nixon

Details: Re-signed with Green Bay, March 15

Instant analysis: The Packers opened the new league year by retaining one of their top free agents. Nixon was one of the NFL's best stories last season. After signing a one-year contract with the Packers last March, Nixon blossomed into the first Packers kick returner to be named first-team All-Pro since the Associated Press added the position in 1976. The 5-foot-10, 200-pound cornerback helped revitalize Green Bay's special teams - first as a flyer in punt coverage and then as a kickoff returner during the second half of the season. Nixon shattered the franchise record for single-season average on kick returns (28.8 yards per return), while adding 17 tackles, one interception and one forced fumble as a slot cornerback on defense.

TE Tyler Davis

Details: Re-signed with Green Bay, March 15

Instant analysis: A core special-teamer, Davis had 10 coverage tackles last season and led coordinator Rich Bisaccia's unit with 346 snaps (80.8%). The 6-foot-4, 252-pound tight end originally signed with Green Bay off Indianapolis' practice squad in September 2021. Over the past two seasons, Davis has caught eight passes for 61 yards in 31 regular-season appearances for the Packers. Davis and former third-round pick Josiah Deguara are currently the only veteran tight ends under contract with Green Bay.
