The Green Bay Packers are revamping their defence in free agency. Smith had a breakout season in 2018, racking up 8.5 sacks and 60 quarterback pressures.

He totaled 119 tackles and 18.5 sacks.

Amos agreed to a $37 million, four-year contract, according to a person with knowledge of the move.

Schefter also reports that the Packers are signing Washington LB Preston Smith to a four-year deal worth $52 million.
The people spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the contracts can not become official until the new league year opens Wednesday.
The former third-round pick out of North Dakota State is trading his orange and blue for green and gold, the colors he had so much success with in college. Unless Rodgers suffers a major injury, this team isn't going to ever be picking at or near the top of the draft, but as we've seen, they can get stuck in draft purgatory as well.
