Green Bay Packers sign Preston Smith: Grade, reaction and more

Billy Turner

The organization is looking to make sure that doesn't happen again in 2019 by addressing their needs in free agency. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, safety Adrian Amos is leaving town to join the enemy Green Bay Packers. He played some left guard for the Broncos this past season, and could excel there, but I think he will find a home on the right side for Green Bay, whether at tackle or guard.

Preston Smith is heading into his 5th National Football League season after spending the first four of his career with the Washington Redskins. He comes off a year in which he racked up a career-best 53 tackles to go along with four quarterback traps. He drafted out of Ole Miss with the 38th overall pick in the second round in 2015.

Za'Darius Smith was selected 84 picks after the Preston Smith in the 2015 draft by the Baltimore Ravens. Smith had a breakout season in 2018, racking up 8.5 sacks and 60 quarterback pressures.

Actresses Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman were indicted in a nationwide, federal college admissions bribery case. It does not appear the schools were involved in the wrong-doing.

Just moments later, Rapoport also tweeted that the Packers are expected to sign former Chicago Bears safety Adrian Amos.

This past season was Amos' best in the pros, as he secured a pair of interception and made a career-high 73 tackles for the Bears while starting in 16 games.

At this point, the details of Amos' deal with the Green Bay Packers is unknown, but given that he played as an elite safety last season, I would imagine he would want to be paid as one. The Packers were tied for eighth with 44 sacks, but they were 28th in opponents' passer rating. Green Bay hired Matt LaFleur to take over for Mike McCarthy, who was sacked mid-season after spending almost 13 seasons as the Packers' head coach.
