Adrian Amos has been a great addition to the Packers defense.

The Green Bay Packers hit a home run in free agency last year.

Not only did they strengthen their pass rush with the signings of the Smith Bros., but they also improved the secondary by adding Adrian Amos.

Amos now enters year two with the Packers as a key starter in the secondary.

2019 stats

Amos started all 16 games for the Packers in 2019, finishing the season with a career-best 84 tackles, eight pass breakups, and two interceptions.

2019 review

Amos became a fan favorite the moment he intercepted Mitch Trubisky in the season-opener to effectively seal the victory for the Packers over his former team. It was an especially sweet moment for many Packers fans who were told by Bears fans how Amos didn’t make big plays. They don’t come much bigger.

Amos did exactly what the Packers signed him to do. He brought consistency to the secondary and performed at a high level all season long. Green Bay was desperate for help at safety, and Amos was a great signing. According to Pro Football Reference, Amos played on 99.62 percent of the Packers’ defensive snaps, more than any other player.

It was an excellent season for Amos. Yet another home-run free-agent signing by Brian Gutekunst.

Odds of making roster: 100 percent

If it was possible to name a percentage greater than 100, I would. While Amos doesn’t always make highlight-reel plays (although he did do that too), he is an incredibly important part of this secondary.

What to expect in 2020?

Amos hasn’t had too many injury concerns in his career and he’s played in all 16 regular season games the past two years. If he stays healthy, we should expect more of the same in 2020.

A player the Packers can count on to be on the field for the majority of the snaps, and someone who rarely makes mistakes.

The partnership between starters Amos and second-year Darnell Savage will only continue to get better and I can’t wait to see these two back on the field together in 2020.
