Mutual Interest Between Ravens and Free-Agent Safety Adrian Amos Reportedly Remains
Free-agent safety Adrian Amos reportedly visited the Ravens in late March and The Athletic’s Jeff Zrebiec said it appears there is still mutual interest.
“Amos is a Baltimore native who grew up idolizing Ravens Hall of Fame safety Ed Reed, so a homecoming to play on a high-quality defense would seemingly have some appeal,” Zrebiec wrote. “However, Amos, who hasn’t missed a start in five straight seasons and has only missed four games in his eight-year career, has other options, including a return to Green Bay.”
The Ravens have a strong safety tandem in Marcus Williams and Kyle Hamilton, and they also have other depth needs and limited cap space. That said, the Ravens didn’t draft a safety after trading Chuck Clark. Brandon Stephens will focus on playing safety, however, and could assume a hybrid role.
Amos would still be a valuable addition regardless.
“It would be easy to say the Ravens already have enough depth at safety, but adding Amos would allow them to use Hamilton more in matchup situations and in the slot,” Zrebiec wrote. “In a way, it would be almost like adding another corner.”
