Packers set to sign LB Za'Darius Smith

Tuesday, one year after the Packers tried - and failed - to lure restricted free agent cornerback Kyle Fuller away from their rivals, they landed safety Adrian Amos.

Amos will get a 4-year $37 million contract, with $21 million in the first two seasons.

Smith, 26, has started every game the last three seasons for Washington.

The Indianapolis Colts will be looking to find some pass rush help this offseason, and they reportedly were among the finalists for free agent edge rusher Preston Smith.

"Unfortunately for us, the market is irrational at times, and we can't be held responsible for what other teams want to pay, " Ravens general manager Eric DeCosta said.

With Smith's signing, it likely means Green Bay will cut ties with Nick Perry.

The Packers certainly aren't afraid to pay for upgrades.

Aamir Khan and his wife, Kiran Rao, Jackie Shroff, Rajkumar Hirani and his wife were also seen arriving for the ceremony earlier. Recently, there were rumours that the couple will tie the knot in a Christian wedding very soon.

Preston Smith is heading into his 5th National Football League season after spending the first four of his career with the Washington Redskins.

For instance, Preston Smith will sign for $16 million guaranteed. Last year, he had 53 total tackles, four sacks, an interception and a fumble recovery.

The 28-year-old ranks third in team postseason history with seven sacks.

While Amos no doubt would prefer if Bears fans kept it civil, he apparently understands why they might be upset.

Smith's agency, SportsTrustAdvisors, tweeted that the player's contract will be for four years and $66 million with $20 million as a signing bonus. Amos brings his extensive experience to Green Bay after starting in 56 of 60 games since being drafted in 2015.

The deal can't become official until after the new year begins on Wednesday at 3 PM CST.
