  • Packers' Corey Ballentine: Busy in 2023

    Ballentine registered a career-high 43 tackles (28 solo), an interception and seven passes defended over 14 games in the 2023 regular season.

    Ballentine played all of 17 defensive snaps over the previous three seasons combined, but he played a career-high 463 for the Packers in 2023 and even made six starts due to injuries in the secondary, although he played only three defensive snaps in the divisional round against the 49ers. He will be a free agent this offseason and will look to catch on somewhere in a depth role.

  • Packers' Corey Ballentine: Nabs first career INT in win

    Ballentine had five tackles (four solo) and an interception in Sunday's 33-10 win over the Vikings.

    Ballentine grabbed his first interception of his career off Jaren Hall on a pass intended for Johnny Mundt. Ballentine has mostly played on special teams during his five-year career, but he has stepped into a starting role this season with Jaire Alexander missing extended time due to injuries and a one-game suspension. Ballentine is up to a career-high 43 tackles over 13 games this season.

  • Packers' Corey Ballentine: Season-high tackles in win

    Ballentine recorded 10 tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 27-19 victory against the Chiefs.

    Ballentine accounted for a season high in tackles, trailing only linebacker Quay Walker in total team tackles for the defense, and played all 67 of the Packers defensive snaps. With Jaire Alexander battling a shoulder injury over the last four weeks, the Packers have relied heavily on Ballentine in the secondary. The 27-year-old has 60 or more defensive snaps and 28 tackles in this four-week stretch. It remains to be seen what kind of role he will have once Alexander returns.

  • Packers' Corey Ballentine: Staying put in Green Bay

    The Packers re-signed Ballentine on Monday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

    Ballentine will return to Green Bay, where he spent time both on the active roster and practice squad this past year. Heading into the 2023 campaign, the 26-year-old could potentially find himself competing for a roster spot in what's become a crowded secondary. If he does make the team, the 2019 sixth-round pick will likely see most of his playing time on special teams, bringing value both in coverage and as a returner.

  • Corey Ballentine: Cut by Detroit

    The Lions waived Ballentine (hamstring) on Friday.

    Detroit activated Ballentine from injured reserve one day earlier, but the club deemed the reserve defensive back expendable when a spot on the 53-man roster was needed for quarterback Tim Boyle (thumb), who was activated from IR in anticipation of starting Sunday's game against the Browns. Before going on IR earlier this season, Ballentine appeared in three games and played exclusively on special teams as a kick returner and member of Detroit's coverage units.
