A 2019 fourth-round pick out of Oregon, Ugo Amadi spent his first three seasons with the Seattle Seahawks before playing briefly with both the Kansas City Chiefs and Tennessee Titans last year. Amadi came out of Oregon as a very versatile player and has been exactly that during his first four seasons as a pro.

He hasn't been a standout by any means, but he's seen 12 starts over his career and has been a valuable depth piece where he's played. He signed in New Orleans as the final slot cornerback on the depth chart, but also with some potential to play safety and special teams.

Having begun camp as one of the final veterans on the depth chart, Amadi may have had an uphill battle to make this team. However, he's become a player to watch as of late, doing everything asked of him, regardless of where he's lining up.

"Amadi's recognition for play flow, discipline for run responsibilities and playmaking ability are a very, very intriguing combination for an addition that not many highlighted in free agency. New Orleans always brings in one under-the-radar player from the open market that ends up having a bigger impact than expected," Ross Jackson of Sports Illustrated's Fan Nation wrote recently.
