After five seasons with the New York Giants, cornerback Prince Amukamara will play for a new team in 2016. 

Adam Schefter of ESPN reported the Jacksonville Jaguars and Amukamara agreed to a one-year deal. Mike Garafolo of Fox Sports confirmed the report.

During an appearance on SiriusXM NFL Radio on Feb. 17 (h/t Josh Alper of Pro Football Talk), Amukamara said his approach to free agency doesn't necessarily start with money.

“Money is not a huge issue, but, as a professional, you definitely want to be paid what you’re worth,” Amukamara said. “If it’s a crazy number per year or guaranteed number, I think that’s a no-brainer. When everything starts to become close, it does come down to scheme and then location.”  

Injuries have come to define Amukamara's career. He has only played all 16 games in a season once (2013) and has missed 13 games over the last two years. 

Amukamara could be a solid reclamation project for the Jaguars who could pay off big time if he can stay healthy.
