Green Bay Packers taking a new, aggressive approach in free agency

Ex-Broncos OL Billy Turner to sign with Packers

Ex-Broncos OL Billy Turner to sign with Packers

Smith has played outside linebacker and defensive end for Baltimore since entering the National Football League as a fourth-round selection in the 2015 draft. But given the contracts being handed out early in the NFL's legal tampering period, it's likely to be a gaudy deal for a player who has produced for only one season. The team has released longtime pass rusher Nick Perry in order to make salary cap space for the four incoming free agents.

Within hours of agreeing to a four-year, $66 million contract with former Ravens pass rusher Za'Darius Smith, the Packers added a second pass rusher: former Redskins second-round pick Preston Smith.

Smith is one of four defenders the Ravens have already lost in free agency, along with linebackers C.J. Mosley (Jets) and Terrell Suggs (Cardinals) and safety Eric Weddle (Rams).

Baltimore's visit to Kansas City last season provided two strong examples of Smith's game-changing ability on third down.

Both additions help the Packers at arguably their two biggest weak points on the entire roster.

Schefter reports that the Packers are signing former Broncos OL Billy Turner to a four-year, $28 million deal.

From 2005-2017, the Green Bay Packers employed Ted Thompson as their general manager.

The deal can't become official until after the new year begins on Wednesday at 3 PM CST.

The Packers certainly aren't afraid to pay for upgrades.

Amos is coming off a 2018 campaign in which he racked up 73 tackles, a sack, a couple of interceptions, a fumble recovery and nine passes defended. If Pettine can keep Smith producing disruption on the money down for the Packers defense, he'll be worth all that money.
