Jamar Summers, CB, Birmingham Iron
Jamar Summers started off the AAF’s inaugural season really well but he, unfortunately, fell off a little bit towards the end of the season. With that being said, he still played well enough to pique the interest of some teams in the NFL.
Summers played some of both safety and cornerback in college at the University of Connecticut. He was a four year contributor and a three year starter at UConn and was pretty productive. He collected 12 interceptions, 21 pass breakups, and even 5.5 tackles for loss.
Summers played primarily cornerback in the AAF and was extremely dominant as a cornerback in addition to contributing really well on special teams. He intercepted three passes and broke up six more in coverage while also forcing two fumbles as a gunner covering kicks. He’s smaller, 5’11” and 190 lbs, but feisty.
Summers has been banged up recently with a knee injury was pretty banged up towards the end of the year. But, prior to that, he was one of the top corners in the AAF all year long. He is a hard-nosed, tenacious defender who has the chops to stick it in the NFL.
He was an undrafted free agent to the Steelers just last offseason but never really got the chance to show was he could do on the field. His play in the AAF will definitely award him a second chance in the league. The Houston Texans need to continue to add cornerback depth and Summers should be on their short list.
