GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Green Bay Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst flexed his negotiating muscles, Tuesday, agreeing to deals with four free agents. Each player has the potential, if not expectation, to be a Week 1 starter for the Packers come fall:

Adrian Amos, Safety: 4 years, $37 million

Amos was drafted by the Bears in the fourth round of the 2015 NFL Draft has missed just four games -- playing 60 games and starting 56 -- in his four pro seasons. He had a career year in 2018; in 16 starts, he made 73 tackles, two interceptions and a sack -- Josh Jones led all Packers safeties with 55 tackles last season. Read more here.

Preston Smith, Edge Rusher: 4 years, $52 million

Smith played all 16 games in each of his four pro seasons and started all 16 each of the past three seasons. The durable edge defender recorded four sacks and 53 tackles with the Redskins last season, and his 16 quarterback hits were more than any Packers player last season. Read more here.

Za'Darius Smith, Edge Rusher: 4 years, $66 million

Smith has played all four of his NFL seasons with the Baltimore Ravens, drafted in the fourth round of the 2015 draft out of Kentucky. He played all 16 games for the first time last season, starting eight, and delivered a career-high eight and a half sacks. For good measure, he recorded 25 quarterback hits, too -- more than Packers' leaders Clay Matthews (12) and Kyler Fackrell (12) had combined. Read more here.

Billy Turner, Offensive Lineman: 4 years, $29.5 million

Turner played both tackle and guard for the Broncos last season, starting 11 games and playing all 16. Read more here.
