Packers host workout for 2016 second-round pick Kamalei Correa

The Green Bay Packers worked out a second-round pick from the 2016 NFL draft. The team reported a workout for linebacker Kamalei Correa on Tuesday, per the league’s transaction wire.

The Baltimore Ravens took Correa with the 42nd overall pick in 2016. He’s played 63 NFL games, tallying 84 tackles, 8.5 sacks, 11 tackles for losses and 13 quarterback hits. Over the 2018 and 2019 seasons with the Tennessee Titans. Correa delivered all 8.5 of his sacks, including a career-high 5.0 in 2019.

The 6-3, 241-pound linebacker has been traded twice since entering the NFL. He played 25 games with Baltimore over two seasons but was traded to the Titans for a sixth-round pick in August of 2018. Last October, he was dealt to the Jacksonville Jaguars for a seventh-round pick.

This past summer, he spent around a month with the Kansas City Chiefs but was cut.

The workout might be nothing more than the Packers updating information on a player that is familiar to both the front office and coaching staff. Not only was he drafted by the Ravens, who employed director of football operations Milt Hendrickson for 14 years (2005-18), but he played in Tennessee while the Titans had Matt LaFleur as offensive coordinator.

Correa played in only nine games during the 2020 season. He missed time on the COVID-19 reserve list while in Tennessee, and he left the team and was put on the exempt list after being traded to the Jaguars.

Correa’s best season at Pro Football Focus was in 2019. He delivered 14 pressures, 15 stops and received elite grades in coverage.
