Packers appear on verge of adding ex-Cowboys LB Jaylon Smith
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) – Jaylon Smith appears to be on his way to the Green Bay Packers, one day after the Dallas Cowboys released the veteran linebacker.
Packers coach Matt LaFleur said Thursday that “nothing’s official yet,” but added that he believes Smith is in Green Bay while discussing how the former Cowboy would fit in with the Packers.
LaFleur added that it’s “highly unlikely” that Smith would play for the Packers as soon as Sunday’s game in Cincinnati.
Meanwhile ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Smith had reached an agreement for a one-year deal with the Packers. Details of that agreement were not yet available Thursday morning.
