As the free agent safety market took form yesterday, it became increasingly clear that Adrian Amos was getting priced out of Halas Hall.
He didn't have to go too far, apparently. According to Ian Rapoport, Amos has his new team:
Packers are giving former Bears’ safety Adrian Amos a 4-year, $37 million deal that includes $14 million in year one and $21 million in first two years of deal, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 12, 2019
How juicy! Amos had been with the Bears for the last four seasons, getting taken out of Penn State in the 2015 NFL Draft. During that time, he started in 56 of 60 games, registering 230 solo tackles, 13 tackles for a loss, 3 interceptions and 3 forced fumbles. He was highly ranked by analytics site Pro Football Focus in both 2017:

Going into the offseason, Amos and cornerback Bryce Callahan were considered by most to be the Bears' top-2 targets. With this morning's news and yesterday's signing of corner Buster Skrine, it's looking like the Bears won't have either in 2019 and beyond.
