The Green Bay Packers have been busy at safety this offseason.

This week, the Packers announced they had signed free-agent safety Jonathan Owens, an undrafted free agent in 2018 who has spent time with the Arizona Cardinals and Houston Texans.

Owens has played 31 games in the NFL, including making 17 starts for the Texans last season.

The Packers also signed former San Francisco 49ers safety Tarvarius Moore and drafted Iowa State's Anthony Johnson Jr. This comes after re-signing Rudy Ford, who started six games last season, and Dallin Leavitt.

With plenty of depth and starting experience, how does the Owens signing update Green Bay's safety depth chart?

The Packers have made several moves at safety this offseason, although Adrian Amos remains a free agent. With Amos not re-signed, here's the projected depth chart at safety:

There should be competition for starting jobs this summer.

Savage is likely the only guaranteed starter. He has started 59 games for the Packers since being drafted in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft.

With his starting experience, Owens would be a great choice to start alongside Savage. Ford will also be in the mix, having impressed in his six starts last season. Ford made three interceptions in 2022.

Moore also has 13 career starts at safety, although he was signed mainly for his ability to contribute on special teams. Leavitt also plays most of his snaps on special teams.

A player to watch is rookie Anthony Johnson. While he may not see many defensive snaps early on, he has starting potential.

The Packers have upgraded their depth at safety, but their offseason moves likely mean Amos won't be back in 2023.
