A Packers pass rusher agrees to a new deal
A Green Bay Packers pass rusher from the 2022 season has agreed to a deal with a new team. After a frustrating campaign last season, the Packers were expected to look for help with pass rushers in free agency or in the draft. It didn’t help the team lost Rashan Gary midseason. Fortunately for the Packers, they were able to restructure Preston Smith’s deal to stay in Green Bay next season.
However, the Packers have struggled to generate sacks and pressures since Brian Gutekunst has been the general manager. The Packers will have another defensive lineman to find this offseason. According to Tom Pelissero with the NFL Network, the Seahawks have agreed to terms with Jarran Reed.
