During last year’s draft, the Packers selected Gary with the 12th overall pick in the first round. The rookie defensive end had to wear a shoulder brace on his right shoulder after injuring it in his final season at Michigan.
In his first season in the NFL, Gary tallied two sacks, three tackles for loss, three quarterback hits, and a fumble recovery. The former Wolverine was given a limited role in Green Bay’s defense in 2019. Maybe the injury that he was dealing with was partly why.
As for Amos, the Packers signed him along with Za’Darius Smith and Preston Smith. The contract that Amos signed in Green Bay was worth $37 million over four years.
Throughout the regular season, Amos totaled a career-high 81 tackles, one sack, eight deflections, and two interceptions. Then, in the postseason, the playmaking safety recorded nine tackles and one deflection.
Luckily for the Packers, both Gary and Amos are on track to avoid surgery this offseason. Given that, both of them should be fully healthy for the team’s offseason programs.
