Report: Raiders release CB Amukamara
The Las Vegas Raiders released cornerback Prince Amukamara, NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero and Mike Garafolo reported Monday.
Amukamara’s stay with the Raiders wasn’t a long one, as the former first-round pick signed with the team in May. That move came three months after he was released by the Chicago Bears.
The Raiders appear content to rely on second-year cornerbacks Trayvon Mullen and Isaiah Johnson to go with first-round pick Damon Arnette, fourth-rounder Amik Robertson and Nevin Lawson, among others.
Amukamara, 31, finished last season with 53 tackles and 10 pass breakups in 15 games, but he failed to record an interception after nabbing three in 2018. Across 44 games with the Bears, he totaled 29 pass breakups.
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.
