(670 The Score) A starter of 56 games at safety for the Bears over the last four seasons, Adrian Amos is now heading north to sign with the Packers, according to multiple reports.

Terms of the deal weren't immediately known. The agreement won't become official until Wednesday at 3 p.m., which marks the start of the new league year.

Amos, 25, had his best season in 2018, recording two interceptions and nine pass deflections. He was a fifth-round pick of the Bears in the 2015 NFL Draft and a reliable starter.

With an eye on another move that remains unclear, the Bears on Tuesday morning opened up $11 million in cap space by restructuring in the contract of All-Pro pass rusher Khalil Mack, according to ESPN.
