Arizona Cardinals to sign cornerback Prince Amukamara after Covid-19 test

NFL: Chicago Bears at Denver Broncos Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Cardinals continue to make moves within their roster, trying to fix their dwindling secondary.

The Cardinals according to Dan Graziano will be signing veteran cornerback and valley product Prince Amukamara.

Amukamara (31), will be playing with his fourth team in his nine year NFL career.

He was drafted with the 19th overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft by the New York Giants, where he played for five seasons, starting 45 games and appearing in 55 games.

After the Giants, he played for the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2016, before signing with the Chicago Bears in 2017 where he 42 of 44 games while there.

In his career, Amukamara has 10 interceptions, one returned for a touchdown, has forced six fumbles and has 477 career tackles.

He played well for the Bears the last two seasons, but because of his age and the mileage he did not have a big market for him this offseason. He is a good veteran though who could potentially help a struggling Cards secondary.
