CB Prince Amukamara Among the Last Three Rookie Holdouts


Let me just say this up front – the Giants do not generally need or depend on a first year player to come into their system right away and make an impact. This is not the case with first round pick Amukamara — the Giants desperately need depth at CB and he needs to get to training camp pronto. That said…

via PFT:

"The last three holdouts are at No. 17 through No. 19, where Pats offensive lineman Nate Solder, Chargers defensive tackle Corey Liuget, and Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara, respectively, aren’t signed. In that direction, however, the issue isn’t simply whether the contracts will be fully guaranteed. It’s whether Clayborn’s ability to overshoot his allocation will trickle uphill to Amukamara at No. 19 — and then in turn whether it will continue to Liuget at No. 18 and Solder at No. 17."

So frustration deflected a bit by circumstances, it sounds like the dominoes just have to fall in the particular segment of the draft Prince happened to fall into, and Jerry Reese basically said in his interview on WFAN yesterday that it’s a language issue, not a $ amount.
