Drafted in the fifth round of the 2015 draft, Amos has missed just four games over his four-year career.

Za'Darius Smith joins the Packers from the Baltimore Ravens, ESPN reporter and Cover 2 analyst Rob Demovsky confirmed.

It's not just her presence that might have surprised you but the fact that she was working the concessions stand. Captain Marvel is also the first Marvel superhero movie that's headlined exclusively by a female superhero.

The Jets, meanwhile, continued their free-agent spending frenzy by locking up Ravens linebacker CJ Mosley to a huge deal. Throughout Thompson's reign over the Packers, it's safe to say he preferred the Patriots/Ravens method of team building, where compensatory draft picks are deemed more valuable than (the majority of) in-house free agents looking for big pay days. They won't be made official until the new league year begins on Wednesday, but assuming they all go through as expected, the Packers have addressed a few of their top needs in a big way. Smith has 24.5 career sacks and he totaled a person-best 53 tackles last season.

With Smith's signing, it likely means Green Bay will cut ties with Nick Perry. Pro Football Focus rated him the third-ranked safety - Thomas and the Vikings' Harrison Smith - over the past three years combined.

According to PFF on Twitter, Amos lined up as a free safety on 62.5 percent of his snaps in 2018, and has lined up at free safety on 58.7 percent of his snaps for his career. Now add another bookend to defensive coordinator Mike Pettine's unit. He had two interceptions and nine passes defensed in 2018, including an interception in Chicago's playoff loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. The newly anointed duo of Smith and Smith should give the Packers the two starting outside linebackers they need.
