Jailan Smith quickly found a new home.
Smith adds speed and fills a huge gap on the Packers defense, then a spot of injuries puts them in trouble.
The Cowboys still pay for Smith, who signed a massive contract extension worth $ 68 million over five years before the 2019 season. About $ 34 million of the contract was guaranteed, and he has a base salary of $ 7.2 million for 2021.
Smith had zero starts in four weeks. He recorded 19 tackles and played 148 of 264 snaps.
Despite a significant knee injury while at Notre Dame, Smith is an effective and reliable defender. He has appeared in all 16 of his previous four games.
Smith was selected 34th overall by the Cowboys in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft.
The Cowboys and Packers are both 3-1.
