Prince Amukamara signs, all first-round picks done

AP

Every first-round draft pick from this year’s NFL draft has his contract done.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Giants and first-round draft pick Prince Amukamara agreed to terms.

Amukamara was the 19th overall pick, and his deal came hours after No. 17 pick Nate Solder and No. 18 pick Corey Liuget reached their deals.

And so August 4 is the date that the final first-round pick got his deal done. The new rookie wage scale may make lengthy contract negotiations that keep first-round picks out of training camps a thing of the past.

  1. Not exactly namdi awesomeness. Huh?Fake A55 prince. What is this? Coming to america with eddie murphy? This is going to be quite commical. The philadelphia owned NJ giants. Hahaha.

  2. it takes years before you can look back at a draft class and see if a team really had success. I have a gut feeling Jimmy Smith, Prince Amukamara, and Patrick Peterson are all going to be great players in this league. Maybe im bias but i think Jimmy Smith will be a better corner then both of them, yet getting picked after both for “character issues”. I’m sure some feel differently but drinking and burning a little bob marley in my college years wasn’t considered a character issue.

  3. Don’t worry about trying to bring football to africa, Africa is COMING TO AMERICA and they are building their team in the form of the NJ giants. All they need now is to bring in arsenio hall as their man servant and they will be set.

    Semmi: “But where in New York can one find a woman with grace, elegance, taste and culture? A woman suitable for a king.”
    Prince Akeem, “Semmi: Queens! “

  4. Wow! That wasn’t so hard, was it?

    The real test of the efficiency of this system will be next year’s draft class. Let’s see how much bickering and squabbling will go on once A) there’s a full offseason to negotiate, B) the rookies aren’t completely ecstatic that there IS football, and C) the agents have had adequate time to fully understand where the wiggle room is.

    It will still be faster than before, but, thanks to the peculiar bonus system, it’s unlikely to magically fix everything.

    Sure as hell isn’t Philly, unless they were looking for fat, drunk, unemployed livestock

    Ok, Eagle boy, can you tell the class the color of the skin of the Eagles starting QB? How about your holdout WR? Or your starting RB? Or your Free-Agent Crown Jewel CB?

    The game for all teams in the NFL is dominated by African-Americans, and I say that not as a racial slur or epithet, but as a fact.

    By the way, if you would take a second to check your facts, you would find that Prince was born in Massachusetts. He is of Nigerian descent.

    And if I used too many big words in my post, you can always go to dictionary.com.

  7. All the silly comments about African princes and no mention that Amukamara was one of the very best defensive players in collage football for two years running and a product of Bo Pelini’s Nebraska Cornhuskers. Why do people comment when they know so little of the man, and of collage football. Bottom line is Amukamara will be an All Pro defensive back… no matter what team he is on.
    I wish the Bears had snagged him.
