Top Ugo Amadi News

  • Seahawks' Ugo Amadi: Headed for backup duties

    Amadi is expected to start the 2021 season as a backup, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

    Marquise Blair seemingly won the starting nickel cornerback role during training camp, meaning Amadi's defensive snaps will be limited to start the year barring an injury to a starter. The 2019 fourth-round pick is a sure tackler and could lead the team in special-teams tackles.

  • Seahawks' Ugo Amadi: Takes on larger role in 2020

    Amadi recorded 54 tackles and seven pass breakups over 14 games (five starts) during the 2020 season.

    Amadi operated as the Seahawks' primary slot cornerback in 2020. The 2019 fourth-round pick was solid in his duties, letting up 353 yards (5.7 yards per target) and no touchdowns in coverage. Under contract for two more seasons, Amadi should be the favorite to win the starting job again in 2021, barring a free-agent acquisition or a high draft pick.

  • Seahawks' Ugo Amadi: Ready to roll

    Amadi (hamstring) was a full participant at Thursday's practice.

    Coach Pete Carroll told reporters Monday that Amadi was on track to practice this week after missing the last few weeks with the hamstring issue, so the secondary appears to be getting a massive boost. Amadi has operated as the team's slot cornerback when healthy, yielding just 5.4 yards per target and no touchdowns. Consequently, expect him to return to that role during Sunday's divisional game against the Rams.

  • Seahawks' Ugo Amadi: On track to practice this week

    Coach Pete Carroll said Monday that Amadi (hamstring) will return to practice Wednesday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports.

    The Seahawks' secondary looked lost in Sunday's loss to the Bills, as Amadi and Shaquill Griffin (hamstring) were inactive while Quinton Dunbar (knee) was far from 100 percent. Amadi, the team's slot corner, would be a big boost in Week 10 against the Rams, as he's yielded just 5.4 yards per target and no touchdowns this year.

  • Seahawks' Ugo Amadi: Will sit against Bills

    Amadi (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Bills, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

    Amadi didn't practice all week and will miss a second straight game. Last week against the 49ers, D.J. Reed covered for Amadi at slot corner and may be in line for the starting job again, although Ryan Neal could be called upon as well.

  • Seahawks' Ugo Amadi: Sitting as expected Sunday

    Amadi (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game against San Francisco.

    The 23-year-old was considered doubtful due to the hamstring injury, so there was never much of an expectation for him to play Sunday. Damarious Randall should step in for slot work in Amadi's absence since Ryan Neal (hamstring) will be starting in place of Jamal Adams (groin/illness).

  • Seahawks' Ugo Amadi: Unlikely to play Sunday

    Amadi (hamstring) is doubtful for Sunday's game versus the 49ers, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

    The Seahawks secondary is banged up across the board, as starting cornerback Shaquill Griffin (hamstring/concussion) has been ruled out and Jamal Adams (groin/illness) is questionable. Amadi plays a key role covering the slot, and the Seahawks are running low on viable replacements. Either Damarious Randall or Ryan Neal (hamstring) likely will fill in.

  • Seahawks' Ugo Amadi: Slated for nickel safety role

    Amadi is expected to be the Seahawks' nickel safety following news that Marquise Blair (torn ACL) is out for the season, John Boyle of the team's official site reports.

    Amadi served in this role toward the end of the 2019 season and appeared the front runner for the job in 2020 before Blair produced a dominant training camp. When Blair went down in Week 2, Amadi filled in immediately, logging 65 percent of the defensive snaps and eight solo tackles. Head coach Pete Carroll has showered Amadi with praise and believes it will be a smooth transition at the position. He could have his hands full in Week 3 versus the Cowboys, as rookie CeeDee Lamb, who primarily plays in the slot, just torched the Falcons for six receptions for 106 yards in Week 2.

  • Seahawks' Ugo Amadi: Light defensive workload in 2019

    Amadi recorded 17 tackles over 16 regular-season games in 2019.

    Amadi didn't play a defensive snap in 11 of those games, but he occasionally slotted in as a nickel corner when injuries stacked up in the Seattle secondary. Most of his value came on special teams, though, as Amadi was tied for ninth in the league with 11 special-teams tackles. The rookie fourth-round pick out of Oregon is in line for a similar role in 2020 because the Seahawks will return nearly their entire secondary.

  • Seahawks' Ugo Amadi: Increased duties on tap

    Amadi is expected to start at nickel corner for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.

    The Seahawks waived Jamar Taylor on Wednesday, opening the door for Amadi -- a rookie fourth-rounder -- to play on defense for the first time since Week 2. Taylor never exceeded a 50-percent snap share, so Amadi likely will fill a similar role.

  • Seahawks' Ugo Amadi: Full practice Thursday

    Amadi (shoulder) was a full participant at Thursday's practice, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

    Amadi suffered a shoulder injury in Week 1's win over the Bengals, and it looks as if he will be able to suit up Sunday against the Steelers, barring a setback. He should offer depth at the safety position and log snaps on special teams.

  • Seahawks' Ugo Amadi: Picks up injury

    Amadi suffered a shoulder injury during Sunday's win over the Bengals, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio 950 KJR Seattle reports.

    Per Crabtree, the injury happened on a collusion with Bradley McDougald, and it's unclear as to it's severity. The Seahawks don't resume practice until Wednesday, so it's likely there won't be a more clear picture for a few days. Amadi had racked up two solo tackles before exiting Sunday's contest.

  • Seahawks' Ugo Amadi: Drafted by Seattle

    The Seahawks selected Amadi in the fourth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 132nd overall.

    Amadi was a leader on the Oregon defense who's known to be physical in press coverage, but he had struggles in coverage and followed it up with a less-than-stellar performance at the combine, where he recorded a 4.51 40 and 115-inch broad jump. In Seattle, he'll likely be used closer to the line of scrimmage and consequently could push for IDP relevance if he can carve out a regular role sometime down the road.
