Thoughts on Prince Amukamara as CB2 or deptH? (Update: Bills interested)

No thanks,  over 30 and has only played one full season in nine years.   I don't think he is a step up from Levi Wallace, so if the Norman experiment doesnt work out just go with Wallace and call it a day.

Depth, not starter. If Norman goes and Levi gets hurt, do you prefer Amukamara or Cam Lewis/Dane Jackson/Siran Neal manning the outside?

He is a man coverage guy. I think he will be a misfit in a zone coverage scheme.

As long as he allows the U.S. Navy's Pacific Fleet to use the base on his island kingdom, I remain a strong supporter.

Please keep your politics out of football, sir.

He didn't even make the Raiders roster....they brought in, and cut him.

He’s had a wild ride. And just being in the position to watch a lot of giants’ games, he doesn’t seem that good, despite his draft position. But for vet depth at corner? Eh, i’d try him out.

Might be some tires kicked. His best ability might be available. Hasn’t missed too many games the past 4 years.

I think he can still play and would be worth a look. A former 1st rnd pick with excellent size and speed. Would be good depth and insurance, especially at close to vet minimum. He had a good year two seasons ago, 6.5 yds per target, 57% comp, 75 passer rating. Last season was not as good, not horrible but not nearly as good. 

I hope they snag him, the cb depth is concerning imo.

What does the Payroll Protection Plan have to do with this, does it cover NFL players cut from their teams? I guess it is a lay-off, so to speak.

No to Prince Amakumara until he makes good on that “millions in dollars of US currency”  he promised in that email he sent me.

Is it just me, or has everyone written off Levi Wallace?  After a solid rookie year, he did have some set-backs in a sophomore slump, but he is still a starting caliber player, entering his 3rd season (which is usually a watershed year for most players) and is probably better than most #2 CBs in the league.  Yet we are continuing to look.  Josh Norman clearly is an all-pro talent, but is Amukamara an upgrade? 

Josh Norman hasn't been a pro bowl talent in 5 years. Levi is a solid #2 opposite White. I don't think he can play the slot. So his playing time will drop quite a bit if he is not the starter. Maybe Norman will have a resurrection with McD but I think it's more likely he is a surprise cut.

Is he gonna fit in Buffalo with a name like Prince?

On that basis, his only hope is playing for the Vikings.

I’ve always admired ... his name. But he’s never lived up to the hype, imo. I’d say wait til cutdown hysterics pass, then assess the room. If he’s taken by then, ?‍♂️

If they determine he can still play he would be a good option for depth.

 

Once again, if he can still play....I think he could start a game or two if we are dealing with multiple injuries and in need late in the season.  Obviously, I hope we are not in that situation.
