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. Jun 9 - 11:15 AM

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.
Mar 10 - 5:27 PM

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.
Mar 8 - 10:34 AM

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.
Feb 17 - 4:35 PM

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.
Jan 2 - 9:44 AM

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.
Mon, Nov 23, 2015 02:00:00 PM

Giants RCB Prince Amukamara (pectoral) is expected back Week 12 against the Redskins.

He practiced on a limited basis ahead of Week 10 and now gets the bye week to rest up for the stretch run. Fill-in RCB Jayron Hosley will likely move into the slot between Amukamara and LCB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.
Mon, Nov 16, 2015 09:10:00 PM

Giants RCB Prince Amukamara (pectoral) is out for Week 10 against the Patriots.

He hasn't been active since Week 5. After practicing on a limited basis this week, Amukamara should be in line to return after the Giants' bye week.
Fri, Nov 13, 2015 02:03:00 PM

Giants RCB Prince Amukamara (pectoral) has been ruled out for Week 9.

It's a nice boost to Mike Evans' matchup. Amukamara will likely be back in Week 10. The Giants will start Jayron Hosley against the Buccaneers.
Fri, Nov 6, 2015 01:54:00 PM

Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News said it "sounds like next week might be a more realistic return target" for RCB Prince Amukamara (pectoral).

While coach Tom Coughlin said Amukamara has "worked well" since returning to practice on Wednesday, it looks like he'll sit Sunday against the Bucs. Jayron Hosley should get another start at right corner.
Thu, Nov 5, 2015 01:30:00 PM

Giants RCB Prince Amukamara (pectoral) returned to practice Wednesday.

Signs point toward Amukamara returning from his strained pec for Sunday's bout with the Buccaneers. LCB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie has been excellent this year, and Amukamara is a big upgrade on RCB Jayron Hosley.
Wed, Nov 4, 2015 07:49:00 PM

The results of Giants RCB Prince Amukamara's (pectoral) Monday MRI were "encouraging."

ESPN's Dan Graziano reports Amukamara has a chance to play this weekend. Coming off a game where the secondary was shredded for 511 yards and seven touchdowns, getting Amukamara back would be a big boost. We should know more about his status after Wednesday's practice.
