Adrian Amos expected to sign with Packers

While the Colts have been expectedly quiet during the initial wave of free agency, Smith was one of the pass rushers Indy was thought to be high on given his fit, versatility and likely price in the market.

The Packers kicked off their shopping spree by signing former Ravens defensive end Za'Darius Smith, as Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported.

"Amos is an excellent safety who's been great for Chicago over the past couple of seasons", The Ringer's Robert Mays writes.

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

This is a luxury signing, and one that is completely out of character for Green Bay.

Goldsmith-Jones also said she felt asking Wilson-Raybould to seek a second opinion on the SNC corruption case was appropriate. It's not a question of telling the truth versus lying, he suggested. "The truth can not be experienced differently".

In his fourth season with the Ravens, Smith reached career highs with 45 tackles, 8.5 sacks, 10 tackles for loss and 25 quarterback hits as Baltimore fielded the NFL's top defense in 2018. There's a $16 million signing bonus and more than half of the deal ($27.5 million) comes over the first two seasons.

Smith joins the exodus of Baltimore defensive players.

Who did the Packers pay that kind of money to? The agreement won't become official until Wednesday at 3 p.m., which marks the start of the new league year. General manager Brian Gutekunst is making changes there, too, as the team released 28-year-old linebacker Nick Perry after 81 games in seven seasons. Last year, he had 53 total tackles, four sacks, an interception and a fumble recovery.

Amos agreed to a $37 million, four-year contract, according to a person with knowledge of the move. The newly anointed duo of Smith and Smith should give the Packers the two starting outside linebackers they need.
