Amos might have the best fit of most of the FS safeties for Pettins D and who we currently have...

Durable? played 97% of D snaps ...led all D players at Bears

Amos can play deep safety and allow Jones to play in the box for certain packages

Amos can play in the box and allow Williams to play deep single high

Maybe most importantly is very dependable and assignment sure

His 9% missed tackle rate is top 10....maybe this will rub off

Played 62% at free safety...40% playing elsewhere other than deep

Best quote I saw:

"Pettine will have the ability to use Williams and Jones only in rolls to which they are best suited because Amos can do it all"

With a talented all around safety like Amos it could allow Pettine to bring a draft pick at safety along more slowly than say they had to do with Jones as a rookie

Bottom line...he gets short of $9 mil at 25...Williams gets $6 mil at 36

As usual, the initial signings of FA are seen as ridiculous; and some of the signings are nuts. The Packers aren't the only team throwing big bucks at players who are seen as necessary additions by sometimes desperate execs. At least the Packers are going after guys who are younger and may be entering their prime years, rather than guys who's best years are behind them.

I don't think Amos is a top five safety.

He was not even the best safety on his team.

But the important thing is we hurt the Bears, at an important spot.

They are thin in the secondary.  Now they have to draft a safety.

What is with the Bears?

They signed Buster Skrine, and are going to let go of Callahan?

Again, the loss of those two will hurt their secondary.

A very positive view of Amos from CheeseheadTV:

https://cheeseheadtv.com/blog/adrian-amos-is-exactly-what-packers-need-at-safety-351

So, if he's so good, why did they let him walk? Sometimes these things happen. With the Packers, we keep bringing up Hayward and Hill. But the Bears got rid of Greg Olsen and their kicker, who went on to be terrific in SF (I believe). So, sometimes teams just do dumb things. Hopefully, the Bears loss is the Packers gain.

Now if Tre Boston takes a decent deal to come to town we can be almost completely free of desperate drafting. Which would go a long way to fixing the team quickly.
