Adrian Amos is yet to miss a game for the Green Bay Packers.

He has been incredibly consistent at safety in his three seasons for the Packers and is one of the most underrated safeties in the NFL.

The good news? Amos is a starter for Green Bay again in 2022. The bad news? He only has one year remaining on his contract.

2021 stats

In the regular season, Amos started all 17 games for the Packers, making a career-best 93 tackles, eight pass defenses, and two interceptions.

2021 season review

It was exactly the type of season we have come to expect from Amos. He rarely makes mistakes and is good at everything he does. Run defense, pass coverage, you name it. There aren’t many safeties in the NFL who excel at everything on a consistent basis like Amos.

To show how long he’s been playing at a high level, take a look at this incredible stat. According to Pro Football Focus, Amos’ coverage grade of 94.6 ranks first in the NFL since 2018.

Amos doesn’t regularly make highlight-reel plays, which is perhaps why he is often overlooked. But he is up there with the best safeties in the NFL.

Will he make the roster?

Yes. Amos will be a starter at safety alongside Darnell Savage once again in 2022.

What to expect in 2022

We should expect more of the same from Amos. He offers incredible consistency to the defensive backfield.

Amos is both a strong run defender and excellent in coverage. His experience is also going to be important for this defense.

On paper, this Green Bay defense is as talented as we’ve seen in some time. The Packers’ secondary could be dominant this year with Amos and Savage at safety and a cornerback trio of Jaire Alexander, Eric Stokes, and Rasul Douglas.

If Amos has another excellent season, it will leave the Packers in a tough spot. He is set to hit free agency in 2023 and will be tough to replace if the Packers are unable to re-sign him.
