GREEN BAY, Wisc. (AP) – Jaylon Smith has joined the Green Bay Packers one day after the Dallas Cowboys released the veteran linebacker.
The Packers officially announced Thursday they had signed Smith. Packers coach Matt LaFleur had talked earlier in the day about 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.
Smith reportedly signed a one-year deal worth $770,000. The Cowboys are on the hook for the bulk of his $7.2 million salary this season.
