Amos will sign with the Packers, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.
Green Bay has been unusually active at the top of the market, first signing OLB Za'Darius Smith away from Baltimore and luring Amos away from the division-rival Bears. The 2015 fifth-round pick started 56 of 60 games during his four years in Chicago, recording at least 62 tackles each season. Amos had career-high marks in a number of categories in 2018, including tackles (73), passes defensed (nine) and interceptions (two). His consistent work in coverage should be massively helpful to a Green Bay defense that's become accustomed to shaky play on the back end.
Amos registered five tackles in Chicago's Week 17 win over the Vikings to wrap up the season with 73 tackles, a sack and two interceptions.
Although Amos set a career high with 73 tackles, he's posted at least 65 in each of his four years with the Bears, making him a steady fantasy option. He'll be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and assuming he continues in a starting role, he should continue to be a slightly above average IDP at the safety position.
Amos intercepted a pass while adding two tackles in Chicago's Week 11 win over the Vikings.
Amos intercepted his second pass over the past three weeks, and during that span he's also recovered a fumble while adding a sack. On the season, he's averaging 4.3 tackles, so his IDP value has come via his recent surge of big-play production, but since big plays are typically random, his weekly downside makes him a risky lineup option.
Amos intercepted a pass while adding a sack and seven tackles in Chicago's Week 9 win over the Bills.
After performing as a solid IDP in each of the last two seasons, Amos had averaged fewer than five tackles without a single sack or interception before this week's eruption. Unless he builds upon this performance in the near future, he's lacked the upside to be a reliable weekly lineup option.
