During an interview with WQOW in Eau Claire on Friday, free agent safety Jim Leonhard said he’s been in talks with the Green Bay Packers but has had no official contract offer and no deal would appear imminent at this point.
“It would mean a lot, but we’ve had a lot of conversations with teams, Green Bay being one of them,” the former University of Wisconsin athlete said. “They’re a great organization, I’d love to play for them but it hasn’t worked out up to now. You never know what can happen in the future, but we’ll see. They’re a great organization and it’s always fun to see the fans and have a lot of family that follows them closely.”
Leonhard played for the Buffalo Bills last season, but after the expiration of his contract, he’s free to sign with any team. He had a career-high four interceptions and tied a career high with six passes defensed in 2013. He also had 41 tackles.
