Per The New York Giants Press Release.
The Giants announced they have picked up the fifth-year options on the rookie contracts of tight end Evan Engram and safety Jabrill Peppers, virtually ensuring they will be with the team through the 2021 season. NFL teams are permitted to exercise the fifth-year option on first-round draft choices after they have played three years.
When a player has his option exercised, his rookie contract is extended by one year and guaranteed. The player is protected against injury but isn’t eligible to enter unrestricted free agency until after the conclusion of the fifth season – for Engram and Peppers, that means after the 2021 season.
