GREEN BAY, WI (WSAU) The Green Bay Packers have signed their starting center to a 1-point-3 million dollar restricted free agent tender. The deal with Evan Dietrich-Smith was finalized yesterday.
He took over as the starter last December from Jeff Saturday. Other teams had a chance to sign Dietrich-Smith during the restricted free agency period which runs through next Friday. The market was apparent soft for centers.
The team’s other restricted free agent is Sam Shields. He has not signed his offer of a little over two million dollars.
