When Aaron Rodgers went to the New York Jets, there were a slew of former Green Bay Packers that followed. It hasn’t been smooth sailing for many of them. Former Packers safety Adrian Amos and the Jets have mutually agreed to part ways.

Former Green Bay Packers S Adrian Amos Waived By New York Jets
Amos was signed back in June when safety Chuck Clark went down with a season-ending injury. With the Jets, he was playing in about a third of the defensive snaps and was supposed to be a part of a veteran group that would help in a playoff push. The season has been downhill since Rodgers got injured and at 30 years old, Amos is looking to compete for a Super Bowl now. He will go through waivers and could be a cheap option for a team looking for safety help.
Former Packers Not Doing Well In New York
Amos was probably the best of the bunch. Allen Lazard was a healthy scratch last week and doesn’t seem to be impressing the coaching staff after signing a $44 million deal in the offseason. Randall Cobb has been non-existent and Amos didn’t really play a big role. It has led to many Jets fans realizing what many Packers fans came to know last year. Rodgers isn’t a great GM and it was likely time to move on from a lot of players.
Could the Packers bring back Amos? They are weak at safety though Rudy Ford, Jonathan Owens, and Anthony Johnson Jr. have held their own. It seems unlikely but the hope is that Amos can find a team that he can make a Super Bowl run with. He was awesome during his time in Green Bay and deserves a shot at a title.
