Graziano mentions that a deal between the two parties could be official in time for Amukamara to suit up for Arizona in Week 6.

The Bills and Lions were mentioned as potential landing spots for Amukamara last month. However, it appears as though the Cardinals proved to be his best option in the end. 

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 have him included in our Top 50 Available 2020 Free Agents list.
