Perry re-signs with Packers; Hyde heads for Buffalo
The Green Bay Packers have re-signed linebacker Nick Perry, bringing back an important piece to their defense.
Perry had a breakout season in 2016, with a career-high 11 sacks in 14 games.
The Packers drafted Perry out of Southern California with the 28th overall pick in 2012. He has 28 starts in five seasons in Green Bay.
General manager Ted Thompson did not announce terms of the deal.
Meanwhile, The Buffalo Bills began addressing their needs at safety by signing free agents Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer.
Hyde is the key addition and agreed to sign a five-year deal worth about $30 million, with about $14 million in guarantees, a person with direct knowledge of the contract told The Associated Press. The person spoke to The AP on the condition of anonymity because the Bills have not announced the contract's details.
Safety was a key need entering free-agency signing period on Wednesday, and especially after Buffalo released veteran starter Aaron Williams earlier in the day.
Hyde has been a four-year starter at Green Bay since being selected in the fifth-round of the 2013 draft. Poyer has four years of NFL experience, and spent the past three-plus seasons in Cleveland.
