Was hoping for a OLB signing like Preston Smith, but sounds like he has several teams calling....would be happy with Z'Darius Smith as a fall back. Then get a guy like Tre Boston if the other safeties are demanding too much coin. Underrated.
With Anthony Barr spurning the #Jets, they have some extra money. I’m told they’ve taken some of that money and made a last and final big offer to Le’Veon Bell. It’s decision time for the ex-#Steelers RB.
#Packers signing Za'Darius Smith is a perfect piece for a Mike Pettine defense...
Someone that can stand up rush on the edge for you but also kick inside to 3tech and even some nose in exotic subpackages. Power rusher with good/violent hand usage! Love this signing for GB.. pic.twitter.com/YsBQI6sOj3
LB Preston Smith, who intends to sign with the Packers when free agency officially opens at 4 p.m. ET Wednesday, should be significant upgrade rushing the passer. Smith has 103 QB pressures in the past two seasons, according to NFL Next Gen Stats, ninth in the NFL and ahead of players such as Cameron Jordan (99), Calais Campbell (93) and Jadeveon Clowney (88).
We'll have to see how the numbers shake out for these contracts. The Turner APY is pricey though. Unfortunately, that is cost of drafting poorly and having to turn to FA.
I don't pay attention to contract numbers reported today. How the deals are structured, what the actual cap hits are, guaranteed/bonus $$, etc... all of that is the real meat. We won't know all that for a few days.
GB has some young talent there... Not saying they’re set, but there are other places on roster where there’s much less talent.
Jaire Alexander. That’s it.
No. King can play if he is healthy and Jackson is heading into year two. GB has some good young talent there. Now they just have to pan out.
When has King ever been healthy? He's like Justin Harrell with tallant. Those kind of guys are always hurt. Their bodies can't keep up. Jackson is young so I will give him the benefit of doubt, but I wouldn't be surprised if he's a bust.
Great signing in my opinion. The guy is an OLB who is 6 foot 4 and 270 lbs. and can flat out run. He is widely considered to be the Ravens best defender last year with 8.5 sacks and something crazy like 60 QB hits and pressures.
Packers are releasing Nick Perry after agreeing to terms Preston Smith and ZaDarius Smith. Was set to make $11M this season. Will b e a market for him for sure. Young enough and is healthy after battling injuries in 2018, 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013 and 2012
There were 2 things that worked against Nick Perry here. 1st, he was a little bit out of position in a 3-4 defense, he probably would have been at his best in a 4-3. 2nd, he was made of glass. Neither was his fault, so I have nothing against the guy. He did have his moments, but never seemed like quite as good as they thought he could be with the exception of one really nice year.
