A second-round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, Amerson was recently released by the Redskins, after struggling badly through the first 33 games of his career. He's mostly drawn attention for his poor coverage, but the Raiders are so thin at cornerback that Amerson might eventually work his way into a significant role.
Davis played in 13 games as a rookie last year. Amerson has played in 31 games over the last two seasons.
After a sub-par 2014 season,
Amerson lost the job after a season in which he indecisive and lacked aggression, he admitted to the Washington Post. Amerson didn't record an interception and had just seven pass breakups.
“At the end of the day, that’s all it comes down to: just making plays. That’s the thing I felt like I was missing last year: being that big play-maker, game-changer,” Amerson said. “I basically had been that all my life, but it was different for me last year. It was unusual for me. So I need to get back into my groove and just find my swag. … Like I said, I’ve been that all my life, and always had that – I wouldn’t call it a gambling type of mentality – but knowing when to go and make that play, when to step up. It’s something I think a lot of people naturally have in them, and knowing when to bring it out. I just have to have that mindset.”
