Amukamara, 30, is a former first-round pick of the Giants back in 2011. After five years with the Giants, he signed a one year deal with the Jaguars in 2016 before joining the Bears the following season.
Chicago re-signed him to a three-year, $27 million deal in August of 2018 and was set to enter the final year of his contract.
According to OverTheCap.com, releasing Amukamara creates $9 million in cap space and $1 million in dead money.
In 2019, Amukamara appeared in 15 games for the Bears and recorded 53 total tackles, one tackle for loss, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery, and 10 pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 41 overall cornerback out of 113 qualifying players.
