Former Husker cornerback Prince Amukamara has signed with the New Orleans Saints.
This would be Amukamara’s 11th season in the NFL, though he didn’t appear in a game last year. He was cut by the Las Vegas Raiders before the season started, then joined the Arizona Cardinals’ practice squad in October but never cracked the active roster.
Amukamara has 477 tackles and 10 interceptions in 113 games during his NFL career.
As a team captain at Nebraska in 2010, Amukamara was first-team All-America and All-Big 12, as well as the conference’s defensive player of the year and a finalist for the Jim Thorpe Award given to the nation’s best defensive back.
