Gutsy Moves by Gutekunst?


Day two of the NFL’s free agency open contact period saw the Packers make plenty of moves and here is who is headed to Green Bay.

Former Raven Za’Darius Smith led Baltimore with 8.5 sacks last year, and according to his agent, his deal is 4 years worth $66 million dollars.
Preston Smith is headed to Titletown and he started all 64 games over the past 4 years in Washinbgton with  24.5 sacks playing mostly at defensive end.  His deal is similar and apparently 4 years worth 52 million. 
It also looks as though help is on the way in the secondary and it comes from the Bears where safety Adrian Amos is slated to get somewhere around a four-year, $37 million deal.
On the offensive side of the football, former Broncos OL Billy Turner will beef up the Packers up front and he played every spot but center with a price tag of reportedly four-years for  $28 million.
So where does that leave Nick Perry? The Packers officially released him today. The former first first rounder played in Green Bay for 7 seasons, but was often injured and had just 1.5 sacks appearing in 9 games last year.
