Quinten Rollins recovering from offseason groin surgery


  • Green Bay Packers cornerback Quinten Rollins underwent offseason groin surgery to repair a problem that bothered him for much the 2016 season, he told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
  • Rollins and the Packers hope a healthy groin will allow the third-year cornerback to return to the level of play he showed as a part-time player during his rookie season.
  • In 2015, Rollins allowed a 58.4 passer rating on 39 targets into his coverage, which ranked fourth out of 105 cornerbacks with at least 200 coverage snaps. Last season, that ballooned to a 135.4 passer rating on 67 targets, including seven touchdowns, which ranked 107th out of 110 cornerbacks.
  • Rollins will be competing with a host of players for playing time in 2017, including Davon House, Damarious Randall, Ladarius Gunter, and second-round selection Kevin King.

    Nice stats for 2015, but what about 2016?

        I see. Must have skimmed over that. Thanks!

    I really like Rollins coming out of College. It wouldn’t surprise me a bit if he was back to 2015 form this year. Stay healthy and I think he’ll be a huge part of the Packers secondary this season. If ALL the Packers CB’s stay healthy, that secondary could be top 5 in the NFL with ease.

      Fellow Packers fan here, but our secondary being top 5 in the NFL is a fantasy. Personally, I would take league average and be more than happy. We have a lot of potentially competent bodies with the return of House; but King is a rookie, Gunter was over-matched (although admirably) most of last season, and we’re hoping both Randall/Rollins can return to rookie form/that injuries caused their massive 2016 regression. Hopefully we can get average CB play out of that group.

      I’m actually much more concerned about the pass rush and its potential effect on the secondary.
