2. Not bringing back Adrian Amos

The Packers have made about a million moves at safety but have still taken a significant step back. While it's understandable that the team emphasized getting younger on both sides of the ball, that doesn't mean they shouldn't re-sign any veterans.

Adrian Amos signed a one-year, $1.25 million deal with the New York Jets. The Packers gave Jonathan Owens a one-year, $1.01 million contract and signed Tarvarius Moore to a similar deal worth $1.08 million.

Amos is the best player of the three. His contract was only slightly more expensive than the other two. Age isn't a factor, either, as they all signed one-year contracts. The Packers weren't making long-term additions.

While Amos didn't have his best season in 2022, he is still a quality starter who the Packers could've trusted to play at a consistent level for another year before moving on.

Instead, Green Bay will start with either Rudy Ford, Owens, or Moore alongside Darnell Savage. Safety is one of the most concerning positions on the roster, and it could end up costing them throughout the regular season.

Why didn't the Packers offer Amos a similar deal to the Jets? Not bringing him back was a surprising move.
