Former Detroit Lions CB Amani Oruwariye finds new home

According to a report from Jordan Schultz, former Detroit Lions CB Amani Oruwariye has found a new home. Schultz is reporting that Oruwariye is signing a one-year deal with the New York Giants. As noted by Schultz, Oruwariye had six interceptions and 11 pass breakups back in 2021. Following that 2021 season, many believed Amani would take another big step in 2022, but that was far from the case, as he was eventually benched due to poor play.

Key Points:

  • Amani Oruwariye, a former cornerback for the Detroit Lions, has signed a one-year deal with the New York Giants, according to a report from Jordan Schultz.
  • Oruwariye had an impressive 2021 season, recording six interceptions and 11 pass breakups.
  • However, his performance declined in 2022, and he was eventually benched due to poor play, despite expectations for further improvement.

Why it Matters for Amani Oruwariye and Detroit Lions

Even during training camp last season, it was evident that Oruwariye would not hold the position of the Lions’ top corner in 2022. To their disappointment, it soon became apparent that he would not even be the second-best. Oruwariye had a tough time right from the beginning of the season, getting regularly burnt, and things only got worse as the season progressed. He clearly lost his confidence, as he struggled to execute some of the fundamental skills that he had excelled at in 2021. After getting benched, it was pretty obvious that the Lions would move on from Oruwariye following the season. Now, Amani will get a fresh start with the New York Giants.

Bottom Line: Fresh start for Oruwariye

Oruwariye has signed a one-year deal with the New York Giants, according to a report by Jordan Schultz. Despite an impressive 2021 season with six interceptions and 11 pass breakups, Oruwariye struggled in 2022 and was eventually benched due to poor performance. It was clear during training camp that he would not hold the position of the Lions’ top corner in 2022, and his struggles continued throughout the season. However, Oruwariye will have the opportunity to start fresh with the Giants, and we wish him the best in his new journey.
