Analysis: Amerson was released by the rival Raiders earlier this month after struggling with injuries and ineffectiveness upon signing a four-year, $34 million deal in March of 2016. The 26-year-old does own 56 career NFL starts and will have an opportunity to hold down a regular role opposite standout corner Marcus Peters in Kansas City.

Analysis: Amerson had four interceptions and 26 passes defensed during a breakout 2015 season, but has largely been ineffective since signing a four-year, $34 million contract prior to the 2016 campaign. Oakland may be able to use the savings towards re-signing fellow cornerback T.J. Carrie, an unrestricted free agent.
