GB Picks Up Steelers Free Agent Safety Anthony Smith
By By Jay Sorgi
The Green Bay Packers, criticized for not making any free agent moves so far in the 2009 NFL offseason, have just made their first, adding a player with experience in the Packers' new 3-4 defense and a Super Bowl ring.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that the team has agreed to terms of a mult-year deal with former Steelers safety Anthony Smith.
In three seasons in Pittsburgh, he started 14 games, but only played enough in the Steelers' 2008 Super Bowl championship season to register five tackles on defense and four on special teams.
Packers free agent defensive back Jarrett Bush visited the Tennessee Titans, but if the Titans offer him a deal, the Packers can match it and bring him back to Green Bay.
