Via Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune, Bears cornerback Prince Amukamara was asked what he hoped to accomplish this year.

“I’m really looking for a 10-pick season,” Amukamara replied.

The 29-year-old Amukamara has played seven seasons in the NFL. He also has seven interceptions, with three of them coming in 2014 for the Giants. HIs last interception was in September 2015, when he picked off Washington’s Kirk Cousins.

“I’m reaching for the stars, right?” Amukamara said. “But at the same time, I know what I’m capable of. I know how hard I’ve worked. And every year I keep putting those goals out there. Because when it finally does happen, I can circle back to the time that I said it.”

If it does happen, the Bears will be delighted with the three-year contract they gave him this offseason, which included $18 million in guarantees.

Wow! Is PA related to AP 😳

At least 10 INTs has happened in a season.  If he truly were related to AP, he'd be saying he could get 20.

I forgot about Prince Amukamara. Good for him for having lofty expectations, but I think QBs learn quickly to stay away from ballhawking corners.

Is he really a ball hawking corner, though? He has a total of 7 interceptions in his career, 0 interceptions in his past two years. Or are you saying his lack of interceptions is due to his ball hawking prowess; meaning QB’s shy away from his side of the field?

In general, QBs stay away from ballhawking CBs.

If PA becomes a ballhawking CB, QBs will stay away from him.

Mixing up your adjectives. Ball-hawking is a term that’s pretty much exclusively used with safeties.

QBs tend to stay awake from “shut down” corners. Marcus Peters generates a lot of interceptions, but he’s not a “shut down” corner so QBs still throw his way.
