3. Prince Amukamara

Amukamara will be 31 this offseason. As mentioned, it usually is around age 30 when athletes may start to see a bit of a decline. Amukamara hit that threshold, and his 2019 play was not as good as his 2018.

Amukamara missed a game with an injury and later was pulled due to a missed tackle. The team used the time to get a better look at Kevin Toliver in his second season. Whether they trust Toliver or not, they likely will bring in another name, but it is unlikely to be Amukamara. At least not on his current deal.

The Bears could save $8 million by cutting Amukamara this offseason. Considering his age and drop-in play, this is a no brainer. The team has already started to add cornerback depth, but if Amukamara wanted to come back, it could be possible.

However, it would start with him taking a pay cut. Keep an eye on this situation.
