Packers safety Amos ready to lead by example

Most veteran player in GB secondary with Tramon Williams gone

Packers safety Adrian Amos says he’s missing having the structure of a normal NFL offseason, especially when he wants to work even harder to get Green Bay to a Super Bowl.

Amos is entering his sixth year in the NFL and second year with the Packers after signing a four-year deal last offseason. He says he’ll be more confident coming into year two with this system.

“At this point last year I didn’t really have a good grasp of the playbook, and now it’s just already knowing something and just reviewing everything, getting the little details that it takes to play in this defense,” Amos said.

With Tramon Williams still a free agent, Amos is now the most veteran player in the Packers’ secondary and understands many will look to him as a leader. For Amos, that doesn’t mean he’s going to change who he is in the locker room.

“I’m not a rah-rah guy, so I can’t just transform into that, but Tramon wasn’t that, either,” Amos said. “Tramon led by example, he had a lot of knowledge. He was just always someone you could count on, and I learned a lot from him last year, as far as taking care of your body, as far as how to deal with certain things on and off the field. I just want to be that leader in that way.”
