Engram had been the last remaining member o the 2017 draft class to ink his rookie deal.
Per Over the Cap, his deal is four years, $10,718,546 million with a signing bonus of $5,935,304 and a fifth-year option.
Engram was drafted 23rd overall it he first round. His cap hits over the next four years will be as follows:
|Year 1 (2017)||$1,948,826|
|Year 2 (2018)||$2,436,033|
|Year 3 (2019)||$2,923,240|
|Year 4 (2020)||$3,410,447|
The Giants are counting on the rookie out of Ole Miss to inject some life into their offense. The versatile Engram has lined up in the sot, out wide, in the backfield and even in-line this spring, as the Giants have been more diverse with their offensive personnel packages.
Based on what the 6-3, 234-pound Engram showed this spring, the possibilities seem endless.
“I will say that we are very excited about what the young man brings to the table. I mean, he has an excellent attitude, he is very smart, he is tough and I think from the practices that you guys have seen,” said offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan Wednesday.
“He is very explosive and he is very fast. There is an added dimension to the pass game standpoint that we look forward to using in the season.”
