Former Denver Broncos offensive lineman Billy Turner has agreed to a four-year, $28 million contract with the Green Bay Packers, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Schefter notes the contract has a maximum value of $29.5 million.

A third-round pick in 2014, Turner spent the first two-plus years of his career with the Miami Dolphins before he moved to the Broncos in 2016.

A hand injury limited him to one game in 2017, but he played in all 16 contests last year. He also had a solid 2018, even earning a spot on Pro Football Focus' All-Week 11 squad.

Turner provides Green Bay with versatility up front, as Pro Football Focus GB Packers points out:

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported last week that Turner had been in talks to remain in Denver but ended negotiations as free agency neared. 

This is just Green Bay's latest move. Rapoport reported Tuesday that the team reached agreements with edge-rusher Za'Darius Smith, safety Adrian Amos and linebacker Preston Smith.
