Giants Excercise Prince Amukamara’s Contract Option

On Thursday morning, the New York Giants opted to extend cornerback Prince Amukamara’s contract through 2015.

The decision had to be made by May 3rd, which was the deadline for first round picks from the 2011 draft.

The G-Men could could have passed on the extension, which would’ve made Amukamara a free agent at the end of this season.

Instead, Amukamara will make almost $7 million dollars in 2015, which will put him in the price range of cornerbacks like Tennessee’s Jason McCourty, Pittsburgh’s Ike Taylor and Tampa Bay’s Alterraun Verner.

Big Blue also added cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie this off-season for $7 million, along with Seattle’s Walter Thurmond. With those two names new to the roster, it was doubtful as to whether Jerry Reese would extend Amukamara.

The 24-year old was the 19th overall pick for the Giants in 2011.
