Adrian Amos has played every game for the Green Bay Packers since 2019, but the veteran safety may not be returning in 2023.

Amos became a free agent at the start of the new league year last week and hasn’t been re-signed by the Packers yet.

According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, Amos is visiting with the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday.

That’s a potential sign that Amos won’t be back in Green Bay this season.

Amos spent the first four seasons of his career with the Chicago Bears after being selected in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Draft. He then signed with the Packers in free agency, immediately becoming a key starter in the secondary.

And Amos has started every game since, including in the playoffs.

In the regular season, Amos has started 66 games for the Packers, making 362 tackles, 30 pass defenses, seven interceptions, four sacks, 15 tackles for loss, and seven quarterback hits.

Amos has consistently played at a high level, proving why he is one of the best all-around safeties in the league.

The Packers are limited in cap space, and will have even less if (and when) the Aaron Rodgers trade is made.

That possibly means moving on from Amos. If he isn’t back in Green Bay, the Packers will miss him. According to Pro Football Reference, Amos has played 4,069 defensive snaps for Green Bay. That’s tough to replace.

With limited options remaining in free agency, Green Bay may have to turn to the draft in the hopes of finding a new starting safety. Rudy Ford will be another candidate to start after he was re-signed.
