The Green Bay Packers and Houston Texans have been active on the cornerback trading market of late. Today, the teams made a deal with each other.
According to NFL reporter Aaron Wilson, Green Bay has traded cornerback Ka’Dar Hollman to the Texans. Houston is sending a 2022 seventh-round pick to the Packers as compensation.
A sixth-round selection out of Toledo in 2019, Hollman appeared in 18 games with one start for the Packers over the last two seasons. He recorded 10 tackles and three passes defensed.
As we noted, this is not the first cornerback deal these teams have been involved in. The Texans recently sent cornerback Keion Crossen to the New York Giants for a 2023 sixth-round pick, while the Packers traded 2018 second-round corner Josh Jackson to the same Giants in exchange for cornerback Isaac Yiadom.

In Houston, Hollman will join a cornerback depth chart that also includes veterans Bradley Roby and Terrance Mitchell, former Bucs first-round selection Vernon Hargreaves, free agent signee Desmond King and second-year pro John Reid.
The 26-year-old New Jersey native was also a special teams contributor in Green Bay, which could help his chances of making the Texans’ roster.
