The Green Bay Packers could be on the verge of signing their second free agent. The 2023 off-season started off with a bang for the Packers as they re-signed All-Pro return man Keisean Nixon. Nixon was arguably their number one priority when it came to pending free agents. Also high on that list is Safety Adrain Amos, and from the sounds of it, the Green Bay Packers are trying to bring him back.
Green Bay Packers Working On Re-Signing Adrian Amos
Per Bill Huber of Sports Illustrated:
Including playoffs, Adrian Amos started all 71 games during his four seasons with the Green Bay Packers. He didn’t just play in every game, he played practically every meaningful snap.
Keisean Nixon spent one season with the Packers. During the second half of the season, his explosive kick returns didn’t just change the field position. They changed the entire outlook on special teams.
With the free agent negotiating period starting at 11 a.m. Central on Monday, a source said the Packers would like both players back and are working to make it happen.
After three consecutive seasons of two interceptions, Amos had one in 2022 but also set career highs with 102 tackles and six tackles for losses. His 97 tackles on defense ranked second on the team. While he broke up only five passes – his fewest since 2017 – his steady play and solid tackling are things that can be taken for granted.
The safety position is one that is probably among the weakest on the Green Bay Packers’ current roster. Due to the lack of depth, some may be tempted to want Adrian Amos back. However, he had his worst season in Packers uniform last year and Spotrac lists his market value as three years and $20.6 million. That does not seem likely. Bleacher Report agrees and predicts Amos to receive a one-year prove-it deal worth $5.5 million. Will the Green Bay Packers bring back their veteran? It certainly seems like they want to.
