Amukamara, who is 31, was originally selected by the New York Giants in the 1st Round of the 2011 NFL Draft. In 9 seasons in the league, Amukamara has intercepted just 10 passes in 113 games (99 starts). From 2018-2019 with the Chicago Bears, he started all 30 games that he played in, picking off three passes (all in 2018).

Though this seems like it would be a desperation move, that is exactly the position the Lions are in at this point with multiple defensive backs dealing with injuries, including Justin Coleman, who is on Injured Reserve.

Nation, do you think the Lions should bring in Prince Amukamara?
