Morgan Burnett remains in starting lineup for Packers


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/14/2014) Packers safeties coach Darren Perry said Wednesday safety Morgan Burnett is not in jeopardy of losing his starting spot in the lineup, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

"Morgan’s our starting safety," Perry said. "And the other guys are competing, unless I’ve been told differently.

"He’s one of our communicators. He’s a leader on this defense. He knows it about as well as anybody back there. I would expect him to be able to command and communicate amongst the other guys in terms of what calls and what coverages and what checks we’re supposed to be in. That’s the standard operating procedure for him."

Packers safety rotation could change in preseason


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2014) Packers defensive back Morgan Burnett will sit out Saturday's preseason opener against the Titans, reports ESPN.com Friday.

The report also indicates that there is a chance Burnett can lose his starting job, with rookie Ha Ha Clinton-Dix expected to step in while Burnett is out. Micah Hyde is also making a transition from cornerback and has reportedly impressed coaches. Coach Mike McCarthy did note that he considers Burnett a starter, but that doesn't mean he will dominate the playing time.

"We don't get caught on 11 players, especially [when] the emphasis for our whole defense is to play more players," McCarthy said.

Packers want more impact plays from Morgan Burnett


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/24/2014) Packers safety Morgan Burnett signed a four-year, $24.75 million contract last July, then went the whole season without an interception. He also failed to break up a 28-yard touchdown pass to tight end Vernon Davis in the playoff loss to the 49ers.

According to ESPN.com, Burnett "broke on the ball but looked like he was trying to swat a fly rather than making an aggressive move toward the ball." Said coach Mike McCarthy: “I mean, playmaking, you go get the football.” 

Still, McCarthy said Burnett is nowhere near a bust. Burnett, who had 96 tackles and three fumble recoveries in the regular season, would benefit from better play at the other safety position, the coach added.


Safety is Green Bay's weakest link


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/5/2014) Packers starting safeties Morgan Burnett and M.D. Jennings combined for zero interceptions last season, the first time that's happened in Green Bay since at least the 1950s, reports the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Every other NFL team got an interception from a safety on its roster.

"We just didn't get it done and I don't think that was a lack of ability, because the ability is there," safeties coach Darren Perry told the paper. "We just have to make sure we're consistent."

Burnett led the team with three fumble recoveries, but also paced the Packers with 17 missed tackles. Coach Mike McCarthy said immediately after the season that he wants more "impact players" on defense.

Green Bay could give a longer look to Sean Richardson or Micah Hyde, or address the safety position through free agency and the draft.
