Josh Jones Color Rush Jersey , one would like to have a fully healthy group of defensive backs. That is very much not the case for the Green Bay Packers this week as they prepare to play the Minnesota Vikings.On Wednesday, the team practiced for the first time this week and was missing two critical cornerbacks and an important young depth safety. Bashaud Breeland, Kevin King, and Raven Greene all had to sit out practice, leaving their statuses very much in doubt for Sunday night’s game at U.S. Bank Stadium. The one bit of good news in the defensive backfield is that safety Kentrell Brice was able to practice, but even he did so on a limited basis.If those players are unable to play on Sunday, that would leave the team with a cornerback group consisting of Jaire Alexander, Josh Jackson, Tony Brown, and Will Redmond — a less-than-ideal situation. Tramon Williams could shift back to cornerback from his free safety spot in a pinch as well, which would likely result in snaps for Ibraheim Campbell on the back end.In any case … ari-Jersey , being down those two corners would make for a tough matchup with the Vikings’ receivers, even if Thielen is limited in the game somewhat by calf and lower back injuries that kept him limited in Wednesday’s practice. Stay tuned for more updates as the weekend rolls towards Sunday.Packers Wednesday Practice ReportDid Not ParticipateCB Bashaud Breeland (groin)DL Mike Daniels (foot)TE Jimmy Graham (knee/thumb)S Raven Greene (ankle)CB Kevin King (hamstring)G Lucas Patrick (concussion)OLB Nick Perry (knee)Limited ParticipationS Kentrell Brice (ankle)WR Randall Cobb (hamstring)Full ParticipationQB Aaron Rodgers (knee)Vikings Wednesday Practice ReportDid Not ParticipateOLB Ben Gedeon (concussion)TE David Morgan (knee)S Andrew Sendejo (groin)DE Stephen Weatherly (not injury related/shoulder)Limited ParticipationWR Chad Beebe (hamstring)G Tom Compton (knee)G Mike Remmers (low back)WR Adam Thielen (calf/low back)Full ParticipationOLB Anthony Barr (hamstring)DE Everson Griffen (toe)G Danny Isidora (knee)CB Xavier Rhodes (foot) Cowboys linebacker Jaylon Smith has come a long way from a torn ACL that derailed his career and caused him to plunge out of the top 10, losing millions in the process. After one season as a full-time starter, he has now received millions, in the form of a second contract.Here are the Smith terms, per a source with knowledge of the deal.1. Signing bonus: $5 million.2. 2019 base salary: $835,678, fully guaranteed.3. 2020 option bonus: $8 million, due on the fifth day of the league year, fully guaranteed.4.2020 base salary: $5.171 million, fully guaranteed.5. 2021 base salary: $7.2 million Jason Spriggs Jersey , guaranteed for injury; fully guaranteed on the fifth day of the 2021 league year.6. 2022 base salary: $9.2 million; guaranteed for injury; fully guaranteed on the fifth day of the 2022 league year.7. 2023 base salary: $11 million.8. 2024 base salary: $11 million.9. 2025 base salary: $12.35 million.The deal also has a $500,000 annual de-escalator, if he fails to participate in 90 percent of the offseason workouts.The contract includes $19 million fully guaranteed at signing, and another $16.4 million in injury guarantees.Smith’s new contract runs through 2025. It’s a six-year extension through the end of his rookie deal but a five-year extension beyond the no-brainer restricted free agency tender that the Cowboys most likely would have applied at a first-round level. (Smith’s inability to play as a rookie made him ineligible for the franchise tag in 2020.)The new-money average of $12.75 million puts Smith at No. 5 among all inside linebackers, but the total guarantee of $35.4 million puts him at No. 2, only behind Jets linebacker C.J. Mosley.For Smith, the guarantee is the key. Not long ago, it appeared he’d never reach his full NFL potential. He quickly has, and he needed to grab the cash while he could — especially in light of the inherent dangers of the linebacker position and his specific injury history, a torn ACL that wiped out his first season and kept him from reaching his stride until his three NFL campaign.
