Packers re-sign CB Robert Rochell

The Green Bay Packers re-signed cornerback Robert Rochell, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.

Rochell, who turns 26 next month, played in nine games for the Packers last season. The 2021 fourth-round pick was claimed off of waivers from the Carolina Panthers in October.

Overall, Rochell played 112 snaps on special teams and made four special teams tackles across his nine appearances for the Packers in 2023.

Rochell played four different special teams groups: punt coverage, punt return, kickoff coverage and kick return. He didn’t have a penalty or a missed tackle.

Rochell, who became an unrestricted free agent after the Packers passed on offering a restricted tender, is the sixth player with an expiring contract to re-sign with the Packers, joining tight end Tyler Davis, cornerback Keisean Nixon, cornerback Corey Ballentine, running back A.J. Dillon and linebacker Kristian Welch.
