Bears signed CB Prince Amukamara, formerly of the Jaguars, to a one-year, $7 million contract.
His contract is fully guaranteed. A 2011 first-round pick of the Giants, Amukamara spent 2016 in Jacksonville on a one-year deal. The door closed on his return when the Jags gave A.J. Bouye $26 million guaranteed. Injury plagued for much of his six-year career, Amukamara will be playing on another prove-it deal in Chicago. Although Amukamara has missed a ton of games, his play has remained steady, if far from elite. He's a needed experienced addition for a Bears secondary that was undermanned and injury riddled in 2016. Mar 10 - 11:38 AM

Jaguars GM David Caldwell said impending free agent CB Prince Amukamara will hit the open market.

Amukamara settled for a one-year, $5 million deal last March, but he will be looking for a long-term deal this time around after a solid season in Jacksonville. The Florida Times Union believes he will command $8-9 million a year.

The Florida Times Union believes impending free agent CB Prince Amukamara will command $8-9 million annually.

Amukamara settled for a one-year, $5 million deal last offseason but rebuilt his value after playing well and mostly staying healthy in 2016. The Jaguars recently brought in Amukamara's former Giants coach Tom Coughlin as executive vice president. Former Giants DC Perry Fewell was also hired as DBs coach. Perhaps those moves will convince Amukamara to stay in Jacksonville.

ESPN's Mike DiRocco reports the Jaguars want to re-sign impending free agent CB Prince Amukamara.

Signed to a one-year, $5 million deal last offseason, Amukamara played well over 871 defensive snaps and established himself as the starter opposite Jalen Ramsey over the second half of the season. He will cost more to retain on a long-term deal this time around, but the Jags have ample cap space to keep him.

The Jaguars are expected to be without CB Prince Amukamara (hamstring) for Week 3 against the Ravens.

It's a plus to Joe Flacco's matchup. Without Amukamara in Week 2, the Jags were utterly torched by Philip Rivers for four touchdown passes while ceding a mammoth game to Travis Benjamin and a long touchdown to Tyrell Williams.

Jaguars RCB Prince Amukamara (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 2 at the Chargers.

Amukamara played 64-of-68 snaps in the opener, with Dwayne Gratz playing the four he missed, so it appears Gratz will take over opposite LCB Davon House with rookie Jalen Ramsey manning the slot. Jacksonville presents a sneaky-good matchup for Philip Rivers, even without Keenan Allen (knee) playing.

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said newly-signed CB Prince Amukamara is adjusting well to the defensive scheme.

"That’s one of the things we liked on film because he did play a lot of press coverage," Bradley said. "There are little nuances in how we teach it, but he’s picked up on it real quick." Amukamara will compete with Davon House for the starting job opposite first-round pick Jalen Ramsey, but at the very least he should have a role in sub packages.

Prince Amukamara will compete with Dwayne Gratz and Aaron Colvin for the starting job at slot corner.

The Jags are going to start Davon House and first-round pick Jalen Ramsey on the outside. Traditionally a zone corner, Amukamara seems almost overqualified for the slot. He should have a leg up on the other two candidates. Colvin is serving a four-game PED suspension and won't be eligible to return until Week 6.

Jaguars signed CB Prince Amukamara, formerly of the Giants, to a one-year, $5 million contract.

The 27-year-old (in June) 2011 first-rounder will slide in opposite Davon House. It's surprising Amukamara had to settle for a one-year deal, but he has a lengthy injury history, and hasn't always quite lived up to his first-round pedigree. He's still an above-average starter, however. It's a strong signing for a Jags team aggressively addressing its deficient defense in free agency. Amukamara is a healthy season away from a much bigger payday next offseason.

The Jaguars are hosting CB Prince Amukamara for a free agent visit.

The Jags play a ton of Cover 3, and Amukamara is primarily viewed as a zone corner by NFL personnel types. He would be a big upgrade across from Davon House. Amukamara's market has been surprisingly quiet to this point, but he is the top cornerback left in free agency. His market may have been limited by injuries. Amukamara has missed 13 games over the last two seasons.

Per FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo, the Jets have "nosed around" free agent CB Prince Amukamara.

New York doesn't have much salary cap room -- and needs to re-sign free agent Ryan Fitzpatrick -- but GM Mike Maccagnan could still go bargain hunting for free agent cornerbacks that might slip through the cracks. Gang Green has also been linked loosely to free agent CB Adam "Pacman" Jones. Amukamara has not generated much buzz early in the tampering period. The 26-year-old is a solid starter when healthy, but has missed 13 games the past two seasons.

In a radio interview, impending free agent CB Prince Amukamara said he does not expect to negotiate with the Giants before the start of free agency.

Amukamara was told in his exit interview the organization does not want to discuss a new contract until after free agency begins. Amukamara has proven an above-average corner on the field, but he has missed 13 games the past two seasons. The Giants would probably like him back, but they are going to let Amukamara set his market first. He is reportedly seeking $10 million annually.

NJ Advance Media's Jordan Raanan reports it "seems inevitable" the Giants allow RCB Prince Amukamara to test the free-agent market.

Raanan reports the Giants have yet to approach Amukamara about a new deal. That could change before March, but New York appears content to let the oft-injured corner set his value on the market. Amukamara is reportedly looking to average $10 million annually. He's missed 13 games the past two seasons.

Impending free agent CB Prince Amukamara said he would like to stay with the Giants.

The Giants would probably like to keep Amukamara around as well, but the price could be an issue. Amukamara always plays well on the field, but he has played just one 16-game season since being taken in the first round in 2011. He missed five games this season with a pectoral injury, and he played just eight in 2014. The market for Amukamara will be interesting to track this spring.

Giants RCB Prince Amukamara (pectoral) says he's 100 percent for Week 12.

Amukamara has been sidelined since Week 5, but is finally ready to go after the Giants' bye week. He's a major upgrade on Jayron Hosley, and further strengthens a defense that's been playing better in recent weeks.
