Packers' Preston Smith: Restructures deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith and the Packers have restructured his contract in order to lower the team's salary cap number, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Smith has agreed to a pay cut that will reduce his base salary to $1 million, while he'll also receive a $6.5 million signing bonus to go along with the opportunity to earn $4.4 million back in incentives. He only tallied four sacks in 2020 in what was ultimately seen as a disapointing season. As a result, he was seen as a potential release candidate for the Packers. Instead, he worked with the team and will presumably go into 2021 competing for playing time on the edge with Rashan Gary opposite Za'Darius Smith.

Packers' Preston Smith: Returns fumble for TD
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith had three tackles (two solo), a sack and he returned a fumble for a touchdown during Sunday's 41-25 win over the Bears.

This season has been a struggle for the 28-year-old, so it was a welcome sight to see him pick up a sack and a scoop-and-score during Sunday's divisional matchup. Smith has only 2.5 sacks through 11 games this season, though two of those sacks have come within the past three games.

Packers' Preston Smith: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (shoulder) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Texans.

Smith suffered the injury during last week's loss to the Buccaneers, but will suit up after practicing on a limited basis throughout the week. With the veteran ready to play, he's expected to handle his usual starting role at linebacker.

Packers' Preston Smith: Listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (shoulder) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Texans.

This injury may have popped up in Week 6 against the Buccaneers as Smith played a season-low 66 percent of the team's defensive snaps. He was limited in practice all week, though, so there is optimism that he'll suit up in Sunday's contest. Rashan Gary likely would start at outside linebacker if Smith were to be ruled out.

Packers' Preston Smith: Gets to QB in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith recorded three tackles and 0.5 sacks in Sunday's 42-21 win over the Lions.

Smith got to the QB for the first time this season, although he notched just a half sack. While he's still logging starting reps -- he played 93 percent of snaps -- Za'Darius Smith and Rashan Gary have been more effective pass rushers, combining for 3.5 sacks thus far. Preston is due for a positive bump at some point after racking up 12 sacks in 2019, but Week 3 against the Saints will be tough, as Drew Brees has been sacked just once this season.

Packers' Preston Smith: Piles up 12 sacks in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith, who recorded two sacks over two playoff games, recorded 56 tackles, 12 sacks and four pass breakups over 16 regular-season contests in 2019.

The Packers got immediate return after making a splash in free agency to sign Za'Darius and Preston Smith. The two tormented opponents this year, ranking sixth and eighth in the league, respectively, in sacks. Both are under contract for another three seasons, so they're just getting started in the NFC North.

Packers' Preston Smith: Sheds injury designation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (ankle) does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's NFC Championship Game in San Francisco, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.

Smith practiced in a limited capacity all week, but it was enough to avoid a designation following him into the weekend, when he'll look to make an impact via his pass-rushing prowess.

Packers' Preston Smith: Ankle injury lingers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith was limited in Wednesday's practice due to an ankle injury.

Smith's practice reps were also capped leading into the divisional-round win over Seattle, but the injury didn't stop him from generating two sacks and two solo tackles. The dangerous pass rusher will have two more chances to upgrade his activity prior to Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the 49ers.

Packers' Preston Smith: Makes big play in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith had two sacks in Sunday's divisional-round win over the Seahawks.

Smith was slowed by an ankle injury last week at practice, but he was not affected Sunday, getting to Russell Wilson twice, including on Seattle's final offensive play of the game.

Packers' Preston Smith: Set for divisional round
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (ankle) doesn't have a designation for Sunday's divisional-round contest versus the Seahawks, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports.

The Packers capped Smith's practice reps this week due to an ankle issue, but it won't stop him from suiting up Sunday. As the owner of 12 regular-season sacks , he'll be looking to bring down Russell Wilson versus a front that gave up the ninth-most sacks (three per game) in 2019.

Packers' Preston Smith: Battling ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (ankle) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice.

Smith isn't full speed for the team's first official postseason practice, and it'll be worth keeping an eye on his status leading up to Sunday's divisional-round matchup versus the Seahawks. The 27-year-old outside linebacker has racked up 12 sacks this season, and his pass-rushing prowess will be necessary to contain the elusive Russell Wilson. He'll have two more practices to get back to full speed.

Packers' Preston Smith: Half a sack on Monday night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith had three tackles and half of a sack during Monday's victory over the Vikings.

While it was the other Smith on the Packers who stole the show Monday, Smith seemingly played well all game and was able to help his counterpart, Za'Darius Smith, take down Kirk Cousins on one occasion. The duo will possibly have an even easier matchup in Sunday's season finale against a reeling Lions team that will again be trotting out backup-caliber quarterback David Blough.

Packers' Preston Smith: No sacks in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith made five tackles -- one for a loss -- in Sunday's 21-13 win over the Bears.

Smith notched 1.5 sacks in the season opener against the Bears, but they contained him better in this outing. The fifth-year linebacker will look to keep building on his career-best 11.5 sacks in Week 16's clash against the Vikings.

December 10, 2019 06:36 PM
Packers' Preston Smith: Logs another sack in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith was credited with two solo tackles and a sack in Sunday's win over the Redskins.

With 11.5 sacks on the season, Smith now sits sixth on the NFL sack leaders list. He's registered at least half a sack in eight of his 13 games this season.

Packers' Preston Smith: Contributes to shared sack Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith recorded three tackles (one solo) and a half-sack in Sunday's 37-8 loss to the 49ers.

Smith has racked up 3.5 sacks over the Packers' last three contests, already amassing a career-high 10.5 sacks in his first season with Green Bay. A favorable matchup awaits in Week 13 against a Giants offensive line that has struggled against the pass rush, ceding 35 sacks to opposing defenses through Week 12.

Packers' Preston Smith: Sack machine Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith made six tackles (five solo) and two sacks in Sunday's 24-18 win over the Panthers.

Smith's fantastic season rolled on Sunday, as he's now up to 41 tackles, 10 sacks and an interception through 10 games this year. He and Za'Darius Smith have now accounted for 18.5 sacks, combining for one of the fiercest pass rushes in the league. They'll get a tougher matchup in Week 12, however, as the Packers head to the West Coast to take on the 49ers following their bye week.

Packers' Preston Smith: Matches career high
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith posted seven tackles (five solo) and a sack in Sunday's 26-11 loss to the Chargers.

This was Smith's best tackling performance of the year, and he's now matched a career high of eight sacks through just nine games. Preston and Za'Darius Smith have combined to serve one of the most dynamic pass-rushing duos in the league, accounting for 16.5 of the team's 22 sacks and both slotting in the top eight leaguewide.

Packers' Preston Smith: Tacks on another 1.5 sacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith had four tackles (two solo) and 1.5 sacks in Monday's victory over the Lions.

Smith recorded at least one sack for the fourth time in six games, and now has seven on the season -- the third best mark in the league, and just one tally short of his career high.

Packers' Preston Smith: Another sack Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith recorded four tackles (three solo) a sack and a pass defensed across 54 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Cowboys.

Smith now has 5.5 sacks on the year and is the clubhouse leader in Green Bay. He is currently on track to have his best statistical season. Smith will look to continue his dominant play Monday night against the Lions.

September 24, 2019 06:48 PM
Packers' Preston Smith: Dominant performance Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith logged five tackles (four solo), three sacks and one forced fumble during Sunday's 27-16 win over the Broncos.

Through three contests this season, Smith has already surpassed his 2018 sack total. The fifth-year pro appears to have found his rhythm in Green Bay and could prove a valuable weekly IDP asset if he's able to maintain consistency as a pass rusher.
