Packers make free agent splurge with four signings

Za'Darius Smith will sign with the Green Bay Packers

Za'Darius Smith will sign with the Green Bay Packers

How juicy! Amos had been with the Bears for the last four seasons, getting taken out of Penn State in the 2015 NFL Draft. After moving veteran cornerback Tramon Williams to free safety last season due to trading away Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, Amos is a definite upgrade.

This marks the second big defensive addition for Green Bay after also adding former Baltimore Ravens pass rusher Za'Darius Smith. Smith only had four sacks a year ago, but is a great run defender and will be a significant contributor to what is now a scary pass rush. He'll make $37 million over four years, per NFL Network, and get $21 million in his first two years.

WHAT IS HAPPENING? The Green Bay Packers, rumored to be active in free agency this season, have blown the lid off. Brian Gutekunst has signed not one, not two, but three free agents during the second day of the legal tampering period. Turner, 27, started four games at left guard and seven at right tackle for the Denver Broncos last season and brings versatility to a unit that used nine linemen in 2018.

Smith will have to fight against the trend of former Baltimore pass rushers who have gotten big deals in free agency but failed to put up the same production with their new teams. Smith gives them a trio of impactful players. He's never missed a game in four years in the league and should help a teams that was 22nd against the run and forced only 15 turnovers this past season.

Amos was the Bears' highest-graded defender in 2017, per Pro Football Focus, and enjoyed a career-high in tackles (73) and interceptions (2) in 2018.

Amos' presence in the Packers defense will work against the Bears in two ways.
