GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- There's a current five-way logjam to determine who will be the Packers third cornerback.

That's a stark difference than this time last year for the position - also known as the nickelback - when the Packers didn't have much of an idea who was going to fill the role.

Al Harris and Charles Woodson are entrenched as one of the top starting cornerback tandems in the league.

Jarrett Bush, Patrick Dendy, Will Blackmon, Frank Walker and Tramon Williams are all seeking the primary backup role.

Packers cornerbacks coach Lionel Washington says it's a great feeling to have four or five young guys improving and competing on a daily basis for the job.
