Adding Prince Amukamara

Postby DeadRinger » Fri May 15, 2020 1:12 pm

A solid veteran addition to the CB corps who can bring stability, knowledge and decent play to the group. We absolutely needed to add an FA vet, and we did. Amukamara will be 31 this coming season, and he's still a better player than Eli Apple. So I'm glad it worked out this way. His stats last season aren't bad. No INTs, but 10 PDs is pretty good and 53 tackles is a LOT for a CB.

Last season:
15 games, 15 starts
53 tackles
0 INTs
1 FF
10 PDs


From Rotoworld:

Raiders signed CB Prince Amukamara, formerly of the Bears.
The Raiders have been trying to add a veteran corner all offseason and finally were able to bring one in. Amukamara is 31 years old and exiting the prime of his career, but he can make starts in Las Vegas and be a mentor to the Raiders' youthful secondary. Last year with the Bears, Amukamara was graded as the No. 47 corner among 132 qualifiers by PFF and allowed 8.9 yards per target while in coverage.

With this signing, I would expect Joyner to be playing FS most snaps, barring injury to our CB corps:

Mullen
Amukamara
Arnette
Lawson
Isaiah Johnson
Amik Robertson

It will be very interesting to see how I. Johnson does this season. I can't wait to see if he's going to jump forward or eat shit.

Im ok with this signing, he probably signed for the vet minimum too. Deep down I was hoping Arnette would start but I know its probably too much to ask with a very short offseason.
I look for Arnett to play alot this year regardless, but have that vet experience now so he doesn't have to be rushed.
Takes the pressure off big time.

We waived Nick Nelson. There goes a 4th rd draft pick out the door.

Too bad, he was talented , but just kept getting hurt. This team's depth will lead to a lot more talented players getting cut this year. Good problem to have finally.
