Adrian Amos acknowledged to the Green Bay Packers fanbase that his time with the team might be up. The Packers made two moves this week that indicate the free agent and former team captain will not be in Green Bay this season. First, they signed safety Jonathan Owens Friday. Second, they gave number 31 to Owens. That was Amos’ jersey number.
The Green Bay Packers appear to be moving on at safety
In April, general manager Brian Gutekunst said he was keeping the door open for Amos. But it seems that door swinging to a close for the 30-year-old safety after they signed the more youthful 27-year-old Owens.
Not long after the signing, cornerback Rasul Douglas made a vague post on Twitter that many Packers fans interpreted as shade towards the front office for passing on Amos. Of course, that’s not what Douglas explicitly wrote, and he said later the Tweet was not in reference to Owens being signed. However, it is of interest that Amos retweeted Douglas’ original Tweet Friday afternoon.
Adrian Amos responds to a goodbye post
Another post from Amos’ account should catch Packers fans’ attention. Cheesehead TV made a humorous video on their Twitter account saying goodbye to Amos if, indeed, his time in Green Bay is over. Amos responded to the post with a laughing emoji.

I think it’s worth noting that while it appears on the surface that Amos won’t return this season, it’s not a foregone conclusion he won’t be with the Packers next season. The Packers appeared to leak a report to the media about their plans not to sign tight end Marcedes Lewis this offseason. There hasn’t been the same type of report put out about Amos. That could happen here shortly after the Owens signing, but Amos is a free agent with a door slightly open to the Packers as of this publishing.
