Bears Hosting Veteran CB David Amerson For Visit

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Bears have already scheduled an interview with veteran CB David Amerson for Wednesday.

Amerson was just released by the Raiders on Monday, but Rapoport says there’s “serious interest” in him right now and it’s possible he’ll make visits to other teams.

Oakland made the decision to move on from Amerson before his $5.5 million base salary became guaranteed on Wednesday.

Amerson, 26, is a former second-round pick of the Redskins back in 2013. Washington waived him during the 2015 season and he was later claimed off of waivers by the Redskins.

Amerson signed four-year, $38 million extension with close to $18 million guaranteed with the Raiders back in 2016. He was set to make base salaries of $5.5 million and $7 million over the next two years of the agreement when the Raiders released him in a move that freed up $6 million of available cap space.

In 2017, Amerson appeared in six games for the Raiders and recorded 18 tackles, no interceptions, a fumble recovery and four pass defenses.
