Za'Darius Smith said yesterday he was treating the entire defense dinner last night.
Guys asked him: “Z, what's the limit?'
There was none, and Smith said the bill was about $5,000 at Republic Chophouse in Green Bay -- not as bad as he thought it would be.
He's taking his defensive captain position seriously. He said: “I told the defense yesterday, I said, ‘Guys we're 2-0 but we haven't arrived. But one thing, I'm going to take you all out to dinner tonight.' To do little things like that, I feel like it's good to bring the team together as far as the defense and we just get to know each other outside of football. Those are the little things I feel like one reason coach wanted me to be a captain and some of my teammates because they voted for me. I'm going to keep going with it and keep striving to be this leader and this captain for this team.”
