Prince Amukamara wants the Giants to show him the money. After watching Richard Sherman and Joe Haden land huge big money deals, the fourth year cornerback knows he’s gotta drop the underachieving label or the Giants will let him walk.
“I don’t think I’ve really given them a return on their investment yet,” the former first-round pick said at the annual Jets-Giants Gridiron Gala at the Waldorf-Astoria. “I haven’t validated myself yet.”
Despite only producing just three interceptions in three years while battling injuries, the Giants did exercise their fifth year option on the former Nebraska cornhusker.

“There’s been nothing beyond that, and I don’t expect them to,” the Nebraska product said. “But with that being said, I’m counting on this year being a huge year for me. The sky’s the limit for me.
“Seeing all these [rich cornerback contracts] gets me excited, but I’m more excited about my own performance and helping this team win.”
