Adrian Amos has been a reliable starter for the Green Bay Packers over the past four seasons. If he has played his final snap in Green Bay, he will be tough to replace.

Since signing with the Packers in free agency four years ago, Amos has started 66 of a possible 66 games in the regular season. He hasn’t missed a single game.

According to Pro Football Reference, Amos has led the Packers in defensive snaps in all four years.

But Amos is a free agent this offseason. Green Bay may need to find a new starter. It won’t be an easy task, especially if they draft a rookie to step in and start immediately.

In his four seasons with the Packers, Amos has made 362 tackles, 30 pass defenses, seven interceptions, four sacks, seven quarterback hits, and one fumble recovery.

However, it’s no guarantee Green Bay will re-sign Amos this offseason. He turns 30 in April, so will the Packers want to commit to a long-term deal?

If they intend to re-sign Amos, how much could a new deal cost?

As a guide, let’s look at Spotrac’s calculated market value. Spotrac projects that Amos’ new deal could be worth around $6.8 million per year. Their projection is a three-year deal worth $20.69 million, which would rank 11th at his position.

That would be a reasonable contract and certainly one the Packers could afford. It would all come down to whether Green Bay wants to move on and find a replacement in the draft. Amos, too, may decide to start a new challenge elsewhere.

Green Bay could afford to re-sign Amos, but it also has other free agents to consider bringing back like Robert Tonyan, Allen Lazard, Randall Cobb, Marcedes Lewis, and Mason Crosby.

And who knows whether Aaron Rodgers’ future will play a part in free agency decisions?
