The Arizona Cardinals are bringing in Prince Amukamara this week and reportedly plan to sign the veteran cornerback, pending COVID-19 testing protocols.
Amukamara and the Cardinals already have a deal in place, pending tests, according to multiple reports, but the 31-year-old likely won’t clear them in time to join the team for Sunday’s game against the New York Jets.
The Las Vegas Raiders released Amukamara in August after the Chicago Bears released him in a salary cap move.
Amukamara was credited last season with 53 tackles and 10 pass breakups in 15 games for the Bears. He had three interceptions in 2018, but none in 2019. Across 44 games with the Bears, he broke up 29 passes.
Amukamara spent his first six NFL seasons with the New York Giants (2011-15) and Jacksonville Jaguars (2016). He has recorded 477 tackles and 10 career interceptions in 113 games (99 starts) since being selected by the Giants with the 19th overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.
