Prince Amukamara will sign a one-year deal with the Chicago Bears, according to multiple reports.

The former Nebraska cornerback was an unrestricted free agent after spending last season with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Financial details of his deal with the Bears have not yet been reported.

Next season will be Amukamara's seventh in the NFL since the New York Giants drafted him 19th overall in 2011. He spent five years in New York before heading to Jacksonville in free agency before the start of last season.

Amukamara played in 14 games, starting 12, for the Jaguars in 2016. That was the most action he'd seen in a season since 2013, struggling with injuries over the last few years. He registered 49 tackles but didn't intercept a pass last season.

Amukamara was named first-team All-America and All-Big 12 as a senior at Nebraska in 2010. He was also a finalist for the Jim Thorpe Award, given to the nation's top defensive back, and was the conference's defensive player of the year.
