NFL Insider Names Ex-Penn State Football Safety One of Top Remaining Free Agents

As the NFL offseason continues, one of the top remaining free agents on the market is former Penn State football standout, Adrian Amos.

The safety position is always a critical need for many teams, and Amos has proven himself as one of the most dependable players at the position.

Last season, Amos had a career-high 102 tackles, along with an interception and a sack, proving his worth as a versatile defender who can contribute both in coverage and near the line of scrimmage. Despite his impressive stats, the Green Bay Packers, where Amos has played for the past four seasons, have invested significantly in the position over the past two offseasons, leading to uncertainty around his future with the team.

Heavy NFL Insider Matt Lombardo believes Amos is among the top-five remaining NFL free agents:

Best Fits: Green Bay Packers, Philadelphia Eagles, Seattle Seahawks

Adrian Amos remains as steady as they come at the safety position, and is coming off a career-high 102 tackles in 2022, along with 1.0 sack and an interception. Despite his production, Amos faces an uncertain future in Green Bay, because the Packers have invested significantly in the position over the past two offseasons.

A consistent defender who can contribute in coverage — holding opposing receivers to just 9.3 yards per reception when targeted, and up near the line of scrimmage, where he logged a sack and 22 run-stops — Amos’ versatility should make him attractive to contending teams during this phase of free agency.

For Penn State Football fans who have followed Amos’ career since his time playing for the Nittany Lions, it would be exciting to see him join a new team that is in contention for a championship.

Amos’ versatility and consistency make him an attractive addition to any team looking for a strong safety presence on the field.

Overall, Adrian Amos is a top remaining free agent that many teams would be lucky to add to their roster.
