5 things to watch at Packers OTAs starting this week
3. Who starts at safety for the Packers?
The Packers made several offseason moves at safety.
Adrian Amos and Darnell Savage have started the majority of games for Green Bay over the past four seasons. However, Amos is still a free agent, while Savage is entering a contract year.
Savage will likely remain a starter this season, but who will replace Amos?
In free agency, the Packers signed Tarvarius Moore and Jonathan Owens. Moore may play most of his snaps on special teams, whereas Owens started 17 games for the Houston Texans last season. The Packers re-signed two safeties: Rudy Ford and Dallin Leavitt. Ford started six games last year.
Green Bay also drafted Iowa State's Anthony Johnson Jr. in the seventh round.
Then there is second-year Tariq Carpenter, Innis Gaines, and Benny Sapp III. Safety is one of the most interesting positions on the roster entering the summer.
Not only do the Packers need to figure out who will be in their Week 1 starting lineup, but also which safeties make the roster. They have good depth, but with limited spots on the 53-man roster, there will be competition throughout the summer.
It will be interesting to see which safeties are in the starting lineup at OTAs.
