The wound is likely still fresh for Green Bay Packers fans after the team's Divisional Round loss to the San Francisco 49ers. It's time to start looking toward the offseason, though. In a bit of good news, the Green Bay faithful will love cornerback Rasul Douglas' stance on his upcoming free agency.

Packers News

Douglas seems all but set on returning to play at Lambeau field after a breakout season with the Packers in 2021. The 26-year-old ballhawk posted a career-high 5 interceptions across 12 games played in Green Bay. Keep in mind two of those were returned for game-changing touchdowns, too.

The Packers enjoyed an improved season from their secondary as a whole. Green Bay gave up the seventh-fewest passing yards per game (212.8) and Douglas' efforts definitely played a role in that. The fifth-year pro finished the year with an impressive 13 pass breakups and 1 forced fumble.

Of course, the Packers' front office is going to have to cough up a few extra dollars to keep Douglas around, but it doesn't seem like it'll take much. The former West Virginia standout seems overjoyed to have found a defensive system that fits his strengths after bouncing from team to team for so long.

Green Bay has question marks all over the team and is surrounded by controversy regarding starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The events of this offseason are going to go a long way in determining the Packers' Super Bowl chances in 2022. At least it looks like one defensive staple is here to stay.
