Report: Jaguars Sign Prince Amukamara To One-Year Deal

The Jaguars have reportedly come to terms with former New York Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara. What type of player are they getting?

The Jaguars added some more talent to their secondary as they reportedly signed former first-round pick Prince Amukamara.  

He is a long-armed cornerback who has played well when healthy, but he's missed 25 games in his five-year career. Although he would certainly represent an upgrade and add depth, the real question is how many games can you count on him for?

Pro Football Focus tweeted this earlier today:

"New Jaguars CB Prince Amukamara has gone 52 straight games without allowing more than 100 receiving yards"

It's likely that any contract with Amukamara would have significant playing time incentives.  

If there were to be a game next week, the Jaguars secondary would likely line up with Davon House at one cornerback position, Amukamara at the other, with Aaron Colvin playing the slot.  The safeties would likely be Tashaun Gipson and Jonathan Cyprien. 

A considerable upgrade over a season ago. 

The Jaguars defense looks pretty good on paper, assuming that they don't make any other moves.  With that said, they need to add even more depth to account for the inevitable amount of injuries that will occur.
