He also became the Redhawks' sixth highest selection and 45th player drafted in school history.
He fell behind after missing the first three weeks of training camp with a hamstring injury. Upon returning from injury, he competed against first round pick and fellow rookie Damarious Randall for the third cornerback spot on the Packers' depth chart. Head coach Mike McCarthy named him the fourth cornerback behind Sam Shields, Casey Hayward, and Damarious Randall to start the regular season.
He made his professional regular season debut in the Green Bay Packers' season-opener at the Chicago Bears and made one solo tackle in their 31–23 victory. He was inactive the following week after the Packers' chose to play Demetri Goodson instead. On October 11, 2015, Rollins recorded two tackles, two pass deflections, and made his first career interception off St. Louis Rams' quarterback Nick Foles, and returned it for a 45-yard touchdown to put the Packers ahead 14–0 late in the first quarter. He recorded his second career interception with 28 seconds remaining in that game to secure the 24–10 victory for the Packers. On November 26, 2015, Rollins collected three combined tackles, one pass break up, and made his first career sack on Jay Cutler as the Packers were defeated by the Chicago Bears 17–13. The following week, Rollins earned his first career start in place of Damarious Randall who was inactive for Week 13 due to a knee injury. He recorded five combined tackles and broke up a pass in the 27–23 victory at the Detroit Lions. In Week 16, he recorded a season-high five solo tackles during a 38–8 loss at the Arizona Cardinals. Rollins finished his rookie season with 31 combined tackles (28 solo), six pass deflections, two interceptions, a sack, and a touchdown in 14 games and four starts.
The Green Bay Packers finished second in the NFC North with a 10-6 record and received a playoff berth. On January 10, 2016, Rollins played in his first playoff game and made one solo tackle and a pass breakup during the Packers' 35–18 victory at the Washington Redskins. They were eliminated from the playoffs after being defeated by the Arizona Cardinals 26–20 the following week.

He finished the 2017 season with 19 combined tackles (nine solo) and two pass deflections in six games and one start. He received an overall grade of 41.3 from Pro Football Focus in 2017.
The Packers attempted to convert Rollins to safety during the 2018 preseason, as well as giving him punt return duties, but he struggled in both roles. Rollins sustained a hamstring injury during the final preseason game against the Kansas City Chiefs on August 30; two days later, on September 1, the Packers placed Rollins on injured reserve. He was later released by the Packers with an injury settlement.
