The Packers landed the free agent cornerback after all, despite rumors to the contrary.

Green Bay Packers v San Francisco 49ers

TUESDAY — Pay no attention to this discussion from earlier this morning. Davon House is indeed coming back to the Green Bay Packers after all.

House is reportedly signing a one-year contract with the Packers, according to Tom Silverstein of Packersnews.com. The six-year veteran spent his first four seasons in Green Bay before leaving for the Jacksonville Jaguars as an unrestricted free agent two years ago. The Jaguars released him on March 6th, making him a street free agent, and the Packers were rumored to have interest in him almost immediately.

House, familiar with the Packers organization from his time in Green Bay, did not take an official visit to Wisconsin, instead spending Tuesday visiting in Pittsburgh with the Steelers. However, he either did not receive an offer from the Steelers or it did not meet his liking, and he is instead heading back for a reunion with the Green and Gold.

UPDATE: Silverstein further reports that the Packers increased their offer to House after his meeting in Pittsburgh. According to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport, the deal will be worth approximately $3.5 million.
