Prince Amukamara is headed to Jacksonville.

Watch:

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported the cornerback will sign a one-year deal with the Jaguars, according to a source informed of the contract. The Jaguars later announced Amukamara signed the deal.

Amukamara, who was ranked No. 20 on the top 99 available free agents, hit the free agent market after five seasons with the New York Giants.

This is a nice, inexpensive deal for Jags general manager David Caldwell, who continues to his defensive haul in free agency. The team signed defensive lineman Malik Jackson and safety Tashaun Gipson earlier this week.

Amukamara has seven career interceptions.

Here's other transactions we're tracking on Friday:
