GREEN BAY, Wis. – Between Nov. 2, 2020, and Nov. 6, 2022, Green Bay Packers cornerback Corey Ballentine played zero defensive snaps.
In between, he changed teams four times, including joining Green Bay’s practice squad early in the 2022 season.
A sixth-round pick by the New York Giants in 2019, Ballentine will face his former team for the first time on Monday night. He’s played at least 30 snaps in six games this season, including starting and playing every snap the last four games.
“Yeah, it’s been a while,” Ballentine said. “This season has obviously been up and down for me. I started on practice squad and I’ve kind of worked my way up. That’s kind of how every year my whole journey to the league has been. It hasn’t always been easy or how I thought it would be, but I just kept my head down, kept working and let it all play out how it plays out. When I get my opportunity, take that opportunity and make the best of it.”
