Report: Packers to pick up Washington edge rusher Preston Smith

Tuesday morning has been fast and furious at 1265 Lombardi Avenue.

After word broke that the Packers are reportedly adding Bears safety Adrian Amos and edge rusher Za-Darius Smith, ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports the Packers are also set to sign Washington edge rusher Preston Smith.

His colleague at ESPN, Josina Anderson, says Smith will make $13 million a year for four years.

Smith, 26, has started every game the last three seasons for Washington. Last year, he had 53 total tackles, four sacks, an interception and a fumble recovery.

His best years in the pass rush department came in 2015 and 2017, when he had eight sacks in each season.
