Will Prince Amukamara Be Re-signed?
Some hard choices are ahead for the New York Giants and soon to be Free Agent Cornerback Prince Amukamara.
Amukamara was drafted by the Giants in 2011 with the 19th overall selection. When healthy, Amukamara proved that he can be a top cornerback in the league, but availability continues to be the primary concern. Missing 25 out of 80 games might be costly in the open marketplace. Amukamara spoke openly Sirius XM Radio
“I feel like I’ve put out on film that when I’m on the field, I can definitely play and play as good as anybody,” Amukamara said. “But . . . I do have that injury bug or whatever attached to me. But I think my film, like I said is great enough to put me in a position to be one of the top corners to be picked up.”
Rumors began to circulate that Amukamara was looking for $10 million per year, placing him in the top tier for cornerback salaries. These rumors have died down of late.
The Giants General Manager Jerry Reese has over $55 million to use this off season, and may choose to move in another direction because of the strong options at cornerback.
Panthers Josh Norman, Rams Janoris Jenkins & Bengals Leon Hall all could hit free agancy unless they are marked with their respected teams franchise tag.
“I do hope to be back,” Amukamara said during an interview on Sirius XM Radio. “I feel like the organization is a great fit for me, and I do feel like they have expressed an interest. … From what coach (Ben) McAdoo is saying, it looks like they’re going to build a great team. So I’m excited about that.”
Only time will tell how this would play out. What do you think, will Prince re-sign?
