New York Giants pick up option on Prince Amukamara

The New York Giants exercise their 2015 contract option on cornerback Prince Amukamara.

The New York Giants have officially exercised their 2015 contract option on cornerback Prince Amukamara.

As a 2011 first-round Draft pick, he is subject to the new CBA rules which allow a team to exercise a fifth-year contract option on its first-round pick if it chooses to do so.

The 24-year-old has performed well after overcoming initial problems during his rookie year and started all 16 games at cornerback in 2013 with injuries elsewhere opening up a position.

However, he is likely to face competition next season after the Giants acquired Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Walter Thurmond.
