Should the Bears bring back Prince Amukamara?


Prince Amukamara's Raiders career didn't last very long. 

After signing with Las Vegas back in May, the former Bears cornerback is already back on the market: 

Amukamara, 31, started 41 out of 44 games for the Bears during his three-season tenure in Chicago. Last season, in 15 games, Amukamara had a 66.2 completion rate, 53 tackles, and 10 passes defended. While his production has dipped in recent past, Amukamara still plays clean football; he was flagged five times last season – and only once after Week 3. 

A reunion in Chicago makes sense for a few different reasons. Amukamara's contract with Vegas was only for one year and came in at a little over $1 million in base salary – his market is well within the range of where Ryan Pace and co. would be looking at this point in the season.

On the field, both camps are plenty familiar with one another. The Bears' secondary depth is lacking: Artie Burns and Tre Roberson won't be on the field in 2020, and rookie Jaylon Johnson's been limited for most of camp. Nickel corner Buster Skrine has been getting the bulk of reps on the outside during training camp, with Kevin Toliver and Kindle Vildor also cycling in occasionally. Plenty of teams could use a reliable veteran whose voice in the locker room is as respected as Amukamara's, so even if the Bears are interested, they certainly won't be the only ones.
