The four-year veteran played for the Chicago Bears to start his career. He has 269 total tackles, 13 tackles for loss, 18 passes defended, three interceptions, three forced fumbles and three fumbles recovered as he blossomed into a quality safety.
Green Bay signed the two “Smiths” to add to their pass rush. Both of their contract details are not public knowledge yet. Preston Smith had 24.5 sacks over four seasons in Washington. Za’Darius Smith totaled 18.5 sacks in his four seasons with Baltimore.
Billy Turner was also signed to add to their offensive line, but his contract details have not been released either.
The Packers are making an effort to replace HaHa Clinton-Dix, who they traded last season, by signing Amos, a promising young safety. They have also added to a pass rush that already tied for eighth in the league last season with 44 sacks. Their signing of Billy Turner gives them a versatile offensive lineman to utilize.
