I remember Preston Smith had an awesome rookie season when he first came into the league. Looks like he kind of came back to earth after that and then had a decent 2017. Hopefully he can become more consistent, but I like the signing. Both Smith's have the same body type that Pettine is looking for in the defense.

Well, sorry @Outpost31 but this pissant has to point out that a free agent chose GB over another destination. I was told that was impossible.

 

 

 

TBF an Indianapolis 10 is like a Green Bay 6.

Indiana is not a destination though.

Its a drive through state

This is my favorite move by GB today. 

I like what they've done and the money wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.

Still want Burns at 12 don’t @ me 

Ditto. We should still go the Burns at 12, Fant/Smith Jr. at 30, and Lindstrom at 44.

what did he say lol

I don't know exactly, but it was something to tune of loving what was going on in free agency (contracts) and that he will be thrilled when both Smith's sign elsewhere.

I'd still like Burns at #12.  But honestly, trade down now.

If they can come out of the draft with Risner, Fant/Hock, Thornhill/Gardner-Johnson it would be amazing.

All of them are, except Hawai'i.

So can we finally dispense with the nonsense that FAs don't want to come here? It was probably mostly about TT not wanting to sign them.

Not bad, but don't be expecting a super star. Fits well with what we're doing but this is not a sack master.

Very much agree.

He should also be better than anything we put out last year.  Pettine proved that he can get pressure with what he had last year.  Now he's got better guys.  

Really opens up possibilities in the draft now, too.

Just heard an interesting eval from Casserly on NFL Network: Smith lacks the speed to get there from the outside but is better geared to provide pressure from inside - which kinda has a feel for how Pettine was setting up our D last year no? Now - that could have been because we didnt have the goods on the outside last year......but, just saying.....

I'd take him too, but looking at the body types I don't think Burns fits what Pettine wants.
