    Default Adrian Amos and the Safety Position

    Hub Arkush

    “THERE’S A GROWING SENSE THAT THE BEARS WILL BE BIG-TIME PLAYERS IN THE SAFETY MARKET IF AMOS’ ASKING PRICE DOESN’T COME DOWN…

    …THE FEELING IS WHY PAY AMOS TOP SAFETY MONEY WHEN THEY COULD PAY A FEW MILLION MORE PER YEAR FOR A TOP-END SAFETY.”
    From The Score [Bernstien and McKnight]

    I would not be surprised if they let Amos walk if his demands are in the 10/year range.

    I would be surprised if they sign a big name safety.

    The one that Hub mentions specifically is Tyrann Mathieu.

    Landon Collins? Would be expensive.

    He says that he won't get away from the Giants, that they will tag him.

    He mentions

    Joyner
    Clinton-Dix
    Mathieu

    Amos thinking that he is worth $10/mil a year is hilarious. He is simply a slightly above average box safety that doesn't make many big plays.

    Maybe Amos just heard that the Bulls picked up Otto Porter Jr's $26M/yr contract, and wants to be compensated likewise by the Bears?

    Joyner is damn good. But I don't get the mentality of going big on a SS when you have Jackson. Two big contract Safeties in a year or two sounds like a stupid way to allocate your cap.

    Honey Badger coming here is almost unbelievable, but I do want to say this... Can you imagine pairing Jackson with a guy that can match his range? Our pass defense would go from great to nuts with the stroke of a pen
    3 - Kaleb McGary, Right Tackle
    4 - Chase Hansen, S/LB
    5 - Alex Barnes, RB
    7 - Sean Krepsz, C/G

    Amos at 10 million a year is ridiculous.

    I would not even return that call.

    Yeah that 10-12 million is better spent on another position.

    Yep...really no reason to go out and spend money on a SS when they are playing alongside Jackson. He's going to get paid his worth.

    If I were him, I would be in no hurry to get a deal done at this time. It's unlikely you will cost yourself money by hitting FA. At that point, I wouldn't be surprised if he pulls a Lance Briggs and comes back.

    Couldn't the Bears franchise tag Amos, and then trade him to another team, like the Eagles? For Nick Foles?

    Matheiu is a name. Nothing more. He makes a few big plays but gives up many more big plays in return
