  • Prince Amukamara: Let go by New Orleans

    Amukamara is among the Saints' first five roster cuts, Mike Triplett of ESPN.com reports. Amukamara didn't make a strong impression in the preseason opener and is getting cut as a result. The veteran cornerback could still get a shot with another team in preseason, or even once the regular season begins, should injuries strike.

  • Prince Amukamara: Heads to Arizona

    The Cardinals signed Amukamara to the practice squad Tuesday. Amukamara failed to make the final roster in Las Vegas during training camp after starting for the Bears over the last three seasons and racking up 29 pass breakups and three interceptions. He's finally found a new team after visiting with the Cardinals last week. The Cardinals' secondary has actually been decent, allowing 222.4 passing yards per game -- the fifth-best rate in the league. Nevertheless, Amukamara should have a chance to climb the depth chart in Arizona.

He's signed with the Bears through 2020, and based on his ability to post solid tackle totals, should continue to be an IDP with a solid floor but limited upside.

  • Bears' Prince Amukamara: Solidified in starting role

    Amukamara is locked into a starting role at cornerback opposite Kyle Fuller and is looking to build on a solid first season with the Bears, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports. Amukamara, who re-signed with Chicago on a three-year, $27 million deal, boldly proclaimed his individual goal of intercepting 10 passes, but he would do well to match the career-high three picks he tallied in 2014. Barring a surge in turnover production, Amukamara doesn't project as a major IDP asset from the defensive backfield. After posting 85 tackles in 2013, Amukamara has finished with no more than 63 in any of his last four seasons.

According to Pro Football Focus, Amukamara was ranked as the NFL's No. 25 cornerback this past season and will get looks from other franchises in free agency. Health has been an issue for Amukamara, as he has played only one full season in his six-year career, but when healthy the 6-foot, 202-pounder has proven to be solid in pass coverage.
