Green Bay Packers Training Camp Profile: David Fulton

David Fulton practices with Datone Jones

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

The Green Bay Packers‘ safety depth is well-stocked with young, developmental players. It will be difficult for rookie free agent safety David Fulton to earn a spot among this group.

The Packers continue to seek a complement to entrenched starter Morgan Burnett. For the past two seasons, the safety spot opposite Burnett has been manned by Jerron McMillian and M.D. Jennings. Neither have performed well enough to claim the position as solely their own; at least not well enough to make fans forget about former All-Pro Nick Collins.

Behind the top three incumbent safeties, there exists potential to capture one or two safety spots. 2012 free agent Sean Richardson returns and will likely have the edge over Fulton with his superior size and experience — provided he can come back from a neck injury that derailed his rookie season. Veteran cornerback and special teams ace Jarrett Bush can also slide over to the safety spot.

David Fulton fast facts:
Age: 23
Size: 6’0”, 196 pounds
College: Chowan University (N.C.)
Jersey: #40
Twitter: https://twitter.com/40Fulton
Bio: David Fulton hopes to join other former Packers players George Koonce, Robert Brown and Jerry Holmes who also attended Chowan (Junior College, as it was known then). As a senior in 2012, safety Fulton registered 39 tackles (29 solo), five tackles for a loss, a team-high four interceptions, nine passes defensed, a sack and a forced fumble as a senior in 2012. He played in 34 games during his career and recorded 101 tackles (66 solo), including nine tackles for a loss, two sacks, six interceptions and 16 passes defensed.

Chances of making the Packers roster: Poor — The Packers’ safety depth looks pretty well set, barring injury.

Practice squad eligible: Yes.

Watch Fitzgerald Send Cardinals To NFC Title Game

I pronounce this the greatest game I've ever witnessed. There aren't enough words to describe the ebbs and flows that occurred during the fourth quarter of this NFC Divisional Playoff. Both teams should be proud of the way they played, but the Cardinals will be the ones moving on after this Larry Fitzgerald touchdown.

For someone who played like a MVP all season long, Carson Palmer has looked anything but tonight against the Green Bay Packers. If he doesn't redeem himself in the fourth quarter, the No. 2 seed Arizona Cardinals will be sitting at home watching the playoffs with the rest of us next week.

Packers' Lacy Needs Oxygen After This Run

Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy doesn't look like he's missed any meals recently, if you catch my drift. Despite the extra weight he's carrying around these days, Lacy was able to bust out into the open field for this huge 61-yard run.
