Free-agent frenzy: DE Smith, S Amos, OL Turner to sign with Packers

The Green Bay Packers are big spenders in free agency.

On Tuesday, they agreed to deals with pass rushers Za’Darius Smith and Preston Smith, safety Adrian Amos and offensive lineman Billy Turner.

Za’Darius Smith’s agency, SportsTrust Advisors, announced his $66 million, four-year deal with $34.5 million in the first two years.

A person with knowledge of Turner’s contract says the former Broncos lineman got $28 million over four years, and former Chicago Bears safety Adrian Amos agreed to a $37 million, four-year deal.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Tuesday because the deal can’t be official until Wednesday.

The Packers continue to improve their defense after missing the playoffs. Amos, 25, started all 16 games for the Bears last season and had two interceptions. Za’Darius Smith is coming off his best season since being selected in the fourth round by Baltimore in 2014. The 26-year-old tallied 45 tackles, a career-high 8.5 sacks and two passes defensed in 16 games for the Ravens last year.

Turner played all 16 games for Denver last season and split time at left tackle and left guard.

Earlier in the day, Green Bay agreed to sign Preston Smith to a $52 million, four-year contract with $16 million guaranteed, a sourced told the AP. Smith, 26, leaves the Washington Redskins and is expected to improve Green Bay’s pass rush. Smith had four sacks and 53 tackles in 2018, and has 24 1-2 during his four-year career since Washington drafted him in the second round in 2015.
