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 he was set to enter the final year of his deal when the Bears released Amukamara to create $9 million in cap space and $1 million in dead money.
From there, he signed on with the Raiders in May before being cut coming out of training camp.
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.
We had him included in our Top 50 Available 2020 Free Agents list.
Brown, 30, wound up signing on with the Cardinals as an undrafted free agent out of Clemson back in 2013. He played out his rookie contract before returning to the Cardinals on a one-year restricted tender worth $1.671 million back in 2016.
The Cardinals later signed Brown to a one-year extension towards the end of the 2016 season. He spent the past two years with the Seahawks before joining the 49ers in the offseason.
After being cut loose by San Francisco, Brown signed on to the Cardinals’ practice squad last month.
In 2019, Brown appeared in 14 games for the Seahawks and caught 16 passes for 220 yards receiving and two touchdowns.
