Prince Amukamara setting a 10-interception goal for this season

Cornerback Prince Amukamara himself turned in a solid first year with the Bears, even if his statistics (48 tackles, seven pass breakups, zero interceptions) were far from attention-grabbing, Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune reports. 

Heading into his eighth NFL season, the 29-year-old veteran has set a lofty individual goal for 2018. Ready for it? “I’m really looking for a 10-pick season,” Amukamara said last month.

This from a corner who has seven career picks and none since intercepting Kirk Cousins in September 2015. For Amukamara, that was 37 games and two teams ago.

Needless to say, if Amukamara makes it halfway to his 2018 goal, it will be considered a terrific season. But he also makes no apologies for thinking big.

“I’m reaching for the stars, right?” he 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.”
